Meek Mill’s Request for New Judge to Hear Case Has Been Denied Again

Meek Mill’s petition to have a new judge hear his case has been yet again denied. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court announced a split 3-3 decision on Tuesday on whether Judge Genece Brinkley should oversee Meek’s post-conviction appeal on June 18, The Legal Intelligencer reports.

Mill’s request was the second direct appeal he’s filed in the last three months. While the first request went through, with the high court ruling that the Philadelphia native be released right away on bail, the justices ordered on Tuesday that the court was evenly split regarding Brinkley presiding over Meek’s appeal.

While Chief Justice Thomas G. Saylor and Justices Sallie Mundy and David Wecht rejected Mill’s petition, Justice Max Baer delivered a dissenting opinion, and announced he would have allowed Mill’s request.
