Meek Mill’s motion to have Judge Genece Brinkley removed from his case has been denied by Pennsylvania’s highest court, but one justice says he raise the issue again after a hearing next week.
Three judges denied the rapper’s request Tuesday to replace Brinkley and three supported it, 6abc reports.
Meek’s attorneys feel Brinkley has a personal grudge against the “Dreams and Nightmares” rapper, and they’ve filed multiple motions to have her removed.
Brinkley’s lawyers say she’s been fair despite the allegations leveled against her.
TMZ reports that the 3-3 split could have been a tie-breaker but Justice Kevin Dougherty did not participate.
In November, Brinkley sentenced Meek to 2 to 4 years in prison for violating probation. He spent five months in jail before the state Supreme Court ordered his release.
