Meek Mill’s Push to Remove Judge Brinkley Shot Down By Supreme Court.
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has denied Meek Mill’s motion to have Judge Genece Brinkley removed from his case until after his next hearing.
The state’s Supreme Court justices were split on the matter, whereby three denied it Abdul three supported it.
According to TMZ, Justice Wecht denied the motion, however, he left the door open for Meek and his team to raise the issue again after his June 18 hearing in front of Judge Brinkley.
As we have previously reported, Meek’s attorneys feel that Judge Brinkley has a personal vendetta against the rapper, and they’ve filed multiple motions to have her removed.
The three justices that supported Meek’s motion agreed Brinkley should have recused herself because “her continued involvement has created an appearance of impropriety that tends to undermine public confidence in the judiciary.”
Apparently, Justice Kevin Dougherty did not participate in the decision.
Meek’s attorney Joe Tacopina adds that,
“We remain hopeful that the overwhelming amount of evidence in this case – and the Philadelphia District Attorney’s backing – will prompt Judge Brinkley to grant Meek a new trial, failing which we will promptly pursue all appellate remedies available to right this terrible injustice.”
