Judge orders Google to turn over Jussie Smollett's emails, cloud data
A judge has ordered Google to turn over a year’s worth of Jussie Smollett’s emails, private messages, photographs and location data to a special prosecutor who is looking into why prosecutors abruptly dismissed criminal charges against the actor.
Investigators were seeking all of Jussie Smollett's data stored on Google's cloud servers including drafts and deleted messages, saved files, voice texts, call logs, contact records, search and browsing history, and of course, his location data.
According to the Chicago Tribune, “authorities could be looking for any incriminating remarks from Smollett or his manager, especially in the months after State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s office abruptly dismissed disorderly conduct charges against the then-"Empire" actor just weeks after his indictment.”
