PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A Philadelphia judge who’s been targeted for months with harsh criticism for sentencing Meek Mill to prison on a probation violation has hired a lawyer who is threatening to sue for defamation.

Attorney A. Charles Peruto Jr. said Thursday that Judge Genece Brinkley hired him last week. He says Mill’s legal team has been making baseless claims to the media about the judge’s personal and professional conduct.

Attorney Joe Tacopina is representing Mill. He says the rapper’s legal team looks forward to fighting any lawsuit.

Philadelphia-born Mill was sentenced in November to two to four years in prison for violating probation on a roughly decade-old gun and drug case. Mill’s lawyers have unsuccessfully appealed the sentence multiple times and have called for Brinkley to recuse herself from the case.

One thought on “Judge In Meek Mill Case Hires Attorney, May Sue For Defamation

  1. I cannot judge the merits of this case, but while we are enjoying our “Bread and Circuses” (our food stamps and our Superbowl), let’s take a few seconds away from watching our TVs and feeding our faces…..I know you politicians would rather talk football, but I’ve got a few words for YOU US Senators and members of the US House of Representatives and YOU state legislators about YOUR sex scandal “hush money” slush fund, which WE “working stiff” taxpayers paid for, and about our law enforcement and courts, which WE also pay for. Justice is NOT “blind” to money and power in the USA. Rich, powerful, “connected, “high-status, and intelligent “perpetrators” can delay and sometimes deny justice by intimidating, misleading (“I did not have sex with that woman”) and paying off law enforcement, judges and the media. As Tom Wolfe tells us in “The Great Gatsby, “The very rich are different from you and me.” Unlike us “Little People,” wealthy folks can afford to hire top-notch lawyers, public relations firms and private investigators, and often have political or institutional protection. Harvey Weinstein hired former Mossad (Israeli Intelligence) agents working for a private investigation firm to investigate and intimidate women he allegedly molested! Although police Internal Affairs departments usually do a good job of weeding out crooked cops, there must also be independent police oversight committees and routine polygraph exams to weed out corruption or cover-ups among high-level police officials, including the IA watchdogs. High-level “bureaucrats” routinely “cover up” problems to protect their jobs and their organization, as the Catholic Church hierarchy, Penn State, Hollywood, Silicon Valley, Congress (the taxpayer-funded sex scandal “hush money” slush fund), US Olympic sports officials, TV networks, NPR, and everyone else covered up sex abuses for decades. FBI misdeeds (like “CoIntelPro.” bugging the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, and the joint FBI-Chicago PD “swat team” which killed Black Panther Party leaders) under the late FBI “Director for Life” J. Edgar Hoover, a masterful but self-serving bureaucrat who kept his job 48 years, should have been investigated by Congress and the news media. J. Edgar had cleverly collected sex scandal “dirt” on all of them. They were ALL too cowardly to risk public humiliation because they valued their “Precious” Ring of Power and their jobs more than their public duty and their honor.
