Rolling Stone magazine did an in-depth look into Meek Mill, his life and the judge in his case Judge Brinkley. It is a story of corruption, misunderstandings, and abuse of power. Here is an excerpt from the article:
Brinkley has owned and rented a number of properties in North Philly, and has sued, or been sued by, many tenants. (Brinkley declined to comment: The judicial code bars her from speaking about cases – but not about her conduct outside court.) Anna Torres was the mother of an infant son when she rented from Brinkley in 2006. Torres had been living there about a year when her son showed delays in speech development. Doctors diagnosed a severe case of lead poisoning. Building inspectors were summoned; they found dangerous levels of lead in the peeling paint. Brinkley was ordered by the city to fix the problem. According to Torres, who was seven-months pregnant at the time, Brinkley stormed in and started screaming at her. Brinkley sued to evict Torres in 2007; Torres sued for damages. Soon after Torres filed, she and her husband got threatening calls from a Brinkley courtroom staffer: “Don’t show up in court. You are going to lose, because she knows people in the system.” Torres was terrified. Still, she went to trial and got a judgement in her favor.
