Meek Mill and his legal team recently filed a motion to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to have Judge Genece Brinkley, who has been the subject of an FBI investigation, removed from his probation violation court case, but the court denied the rapper’s request. For the time being, Brinkley will continue presiding over his case, but Meek isn’t giving up without a fight.
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has instructed Meek’s legal team to start the appeals process with the Superior Court of Pennsylvania if they want a different outcome.
The court document reads: “And now, this 21st day of August 2018, the Application for King’s Bench Jurisdiction is denied, without prejudice to Petitioner to pursue his claims before the Superior Court in the normal course.”
Meek’s lawyer, Joe Tacopina, has promised to fight hard to remove Judge Brinkley from the case, citing her perceived pattern of troubling behavior as a reason for his effort.
“Time after time, Judge Brinkley has continued to display unethical behavior as she has presided over Meek’s case,” Tacopina explains in a statement. “We will work diligently to rectify this grave miscarriage of justice and ensure that Meek’s wrongful conviction is overturned and he is granted the new and fair trial that he deserves.”
