American actor Jussie Smollett returned to court Monday morning in Chicago and plead ‘not guilty’ to new felony charges accusing him of lying to Chicago police about being the victim of a racist and homophobic attack last year.

The actor appeared at the Cook County courthouse with his family members and lawyer Tina Glandian, who entered a not guilty plea to each of the six counts. She also requested Judge James B. Linn to stop the case, WGN Chicago reports.

Abel and Ola Osundairo, the two Nigerian brothers who claimed he paid them to attack him, were also in court with their attorney.

Smollett had pleaded not guilty to 16 counts last year before the Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s office announced it was dismissing the case. But retired appellate judge Sheila O’Brien later petitioned the court to appoint a special prosecutor to reopen the case and examine why charges against Smollett were dropped.
