Meek Mill and his legal team are still fighting to have Judge Genece Brinkley removed from his case. They believe Brinkley has a biased opinion against Meek and has been acting on it throughout his case. However, on Tuesday, Pennsylvania Supreme Court denied the motion to have her removed. The court told Meek’s legal team that they should file an appeal via the Superior Court of Pennsylvania at this point.
“While the Pennsylvania Supreme Court declined to immediately hear our application to reassign Meek’s case to a new judge, we understand the Court wants us to go through the normal course of appeals to the Superior Court and we intend to do just that. Time after time, Judge Brinkley has continued to display unethical behavior as she has presided over Meek’s case, and 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,” Meek’s lawyer said in a statement.
After the Supreme Court denied their motion on Tuesday, Meek responded by saying, “I’m grateful that my legal team will have the opportunity to present a thorough appeal to the Superior Court of Pennsylvania and make sure my case will be heard in a fair and balanced manner. Unfortunately, thousands of people entrapped in the criminal justice system aren’t as fortunate to have that chance. Although this has been a difficult situation, I will continue to trust the process and I’m confident that justice will prevail.”
