A Philadelphia judge has denied rapper Meek Mill’s request to remove the judge on his case, USA Today reports. Attorneys for Mill say that Judge Genece Brinkley has not been impartial to their client and even has a vendetta against him, but Common Pleas Court Judge Leon Tucker ruled that only the state’s Supreme Court has jurisdiction to remove the judge. Brinkley previously sent Mill to prison for a two-to-four year sentence for a probation violation related to a decade-old gun and drug conviction. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court last month ordered the rapper’s release.
