Meek Mill was released from prison about a month and a half ago. Since then, the rapper has taken full advantage of his freedom. He's attended NBA games in his hometown, headed back in the studio, performed at Rolling Loud and the rapper is also scheduled to headline the 2018 Made In America festival.
According to XXL, Meek's legal team is also continuing the fight to remove Judge Genece Brinkley from his case. The artist and his lawyers have accused Brinkley of acting in unprofessional matters a number of times during Meek's legal battle. Reportedly, she's asked for personal favors from Meek like suggesting him to shout her out on a remix of Boyz II Men's "On Bended Knee." So, the attorneys are headed to the Supreme Court to take their mission of getting Brinkley far away from Meek's case one step further.
In a statement to XXL, Meek's lawyer Joe Tacopina said: "Judge Brinkley's conduct since the time of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court's decision to grant bail to Meek—including inappropriately commenting on his case through her lawyer, treating him differently than the thousands of other uncontested PCRAs and stating under oath that she has in the past and may in the future be disabled from performing her job—necessitates her immediate removal from this case."
He added: "We have now asked the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to do just that so that Meek can be treated the same as all other similar defendants have been treated in the past."
In April, Pennsylvania Supreme Court recommended to Judge Brinkley that she should recuse herself from Meek's case. But, she did not.
