Maybach Music Group’s Meek Mill can’t believe the situation he’s found himself in with Judge Genece Brinkley. The Dreamchasers boss has reacted to new audio of Brinkley’s own lawyer suggesting she fall back on his probation violation case.
Meek Milly went to Instagram Tuesday (July 17) with some pretty heated words and TMZ footage of lawyer A. Charles Peruto Jr. suggesting he deserves a new trial.

Last month, reports emerged about Judge Brinkley shutting down Meek’s request for a new trial.
Meek Mill will NOT get a new trial — Judge Genece Brinkley shut down his motion, despite prosecutors acknowledging he should get one. Brinkley made her stunning ruling Monday, saying, “After an in-depth review of the record, court history, notes of testimony, and evidence submitted at the evidentiary hearing, this court hereby denies defendant’s petition for PCRA relief as defendant failed to meet his burden of proof.” (TMZ)
Meek’s legal muscle almost immediately issued a statement on the ruling and what’s to come next.
7:43 AM PT — Meek’s attorney, Joe Tacopina, tells TMZ, “Judge Brinkley made clear during the hearing on June 18th that she had already decided the matter. We continue to believe that this miscarriage of justice will be corrected upon further review, and that the public’s confidence in the impartiality of the judicial system in Pennsylvania will be restored.” (TMZ)
Recently, Meek had his request to get Brinkley off his case shut down.
Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court is denying Meek Mill’s motion to have Judge Brinkley removed from his case … at least until after his next hearing. The state’s Supreme Court justices were split on the matter — 3 denied it, 3 supported it … but there’s a twist. Justice Wecht denied it, but left the door open for Meek and his team to raise the issue again after his June 18 hearing in front of Judge Brinkley. (TMZ)
