Meek Mill to File Motion to Remove Judge From Case

  /  11.13.2017

Meek Mill is hoping for a new judge.

After the Philadelphia rapper was sentenced to 2-4 years in prison for violating his probation, his legal camp is filing a motion to have Judge Genece Brinkley removed from the case, according to TMZ.

Additionally, Meek’s attorney Joe Tacopina plans to file an official complaint with the judicial conduct board, after claiming that the judge has committed multiple inappropriate acts in the case, including a request for Meek to remake Boyz II Men’s “On Bended Knee” with a personal shoutout to her.

Tacopina has also accused Judge Brinkley of being “enamored” with the rapper and of asking him to leave Roc Nation management to sign with one of her friends.

In the wake of his sentence, Meek has received a flurry of support from the likes of JAY-Z and Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf. The rapper is now expected to apply to Pennsylvania’s Board of Pardons, though that is typically a 3-year process, according to the report.

Governor Wolf launched a petition to have the sentence “remedied” last week. The petition has been signed by more than 345,000 people, though its effect remains to be seen.

Nevertheless, Mill’s battle with Judge Brinkley does not “look promising,” according to Philly.com. Brinkley has reportedly sent seven different men to prison for violating probation in the last four years. Each of the men has challenged her appeals, but her rulings have been upheld by a higher court.
