Meek Mill Files To Have Judge Removed From Case

Meek's attorney's continue to fight the judge who sent Meek back to prison.

(AllHipHop News) Attorneys for incarcerated rapper Meek Mill have filed a motion to have the judge in his probation violation case removed.

The "Dreams and Nightmares" hitmaker was sentenced to serve two to four years in prison in November for violating the terms of his probation relating to a 2008 firearms case.

Meek, real name Robert Williams, has been challenging the controversial ruling by Judge Genece Brinkley ever since, and on Tuesday, his lawyers reportedly filed legal documents with the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania to have her pulled off the case.

"(This) case involves a pattern of judicial (mis)conduct that has prejudiced the rights of a probationer and threatens to undermine the public's confidence in the integrity of the judicial system," the legal filings read.

"(Judge Brinkley has) exceeded the judicial role by sometimes essentially acting as a prosecutor and, at other times, taking an unusual interest in, and trying to inject herself into, (Meek Mill's) personal and professional life."

The new legal filings come a day after Williams' lawyers appealed to court officials to grant the rapper bail on Monday.

Prosecutors cited the "strong showing of likelihood" that Meek's old conviction will be reversed in court paperwork, while explaining their decision and the rapper's attorneys highlighted the statement as they asked for their client's immediate release.
