Meek Mill may be a free man, but he’s far from finished dealing with his current legal woes. The Philadelphia rapper will be due back in court this June, and while his judge, Genece Brinkley, has been encouraged by the PA Supreme Court to step away from the case, she reportedly has no intentions of doing so.

TMZ reports Brinkley believes she’s given Meek a fair shot over the years, and fully intends to face the “Glow Up” MC once again at this next hearing. Her lawyer, A. Charles Peruto, Jr., told the site that the next hearing will determine if the drug and weapons case should be tossed because of the testimony of a crooked cop.

Peruto also claims Brinkley holds no grudges against the star, contrary to what Meek’s attorney has claimed since his November incarceration.
