The lawyers of Jussie Smollett say the brothers of Osundairo misquoted alleged defamatory statements of which they believed they belonged to his team were made, but it turned out that she said her own lawyer.
The quote attributed to the Osundairos Glandian in their lawsuit Read, "Platform … is all about being steroid-free … your whole thing is, you know, whole natural bodybuilding, it's ridiculous. "
Welp, Geragos points out in his court record that Ms. Glandian I never said that – in fact, it was her lawyer, Gloria Schmidt who said the beginning of April the Chicago Tribune … literally. That alone, so argues Geragos, is reason enough for tribulation – but there is more.
Geragos and Co. say the brothers also paraphrased what Geragos claimed in a podcast he made with the comic Adam Carolla claiming that the celebrity lawyer had their replays through the Mud pulled by indicating that they had attacked Jussie, perpetrated their perjury and conspired to make false statements to erase their names.
Geragos submitted transcripts of his podcast during the criminal proceedings, and he states … he never said the names of the brothers, nor did he say or state what they were due to him. Another example that leads Geragos to mermaid this thing.
Long story short … Jussie's lawyers say that the brothers can not properly understand their quotes, and by falsely attributing statements to Geragos and co. … the lawsuit should be removed and the brothers should also be punished if they allegedly lied to the court.
The lawyer of the Osundairo brothers, Gloria Schmidt, tells us … "They are reaching for straws. Searching through my statements and every reasonable person who reads the entirety of my statements will lead to the conclusion that I was angry at the false allegations of illegal steroid use by the brothers.
