Meek Mill’s lawyer Joe Tacopina called Pennsylvania judge Genece Brinkley “a little delusional” for refusing to drop off of the rapper’s case and even suggested that the Pennsylvania Supreme Court nudged her to leave after freeing Meek this week.

Tacopina recently spoke with TMZ after his client was sprung from prison and discussed the written Pennsylvania Supreme Court decision that granted Meek his freedom. He said the court almost clearly urged Brinkley to leave the case with a statement reading “Brinkley may opt to remove herself from presiding over this matter.” Tacopina then used Pennsylvania law to illustrate how her move would be done “in the interest of justice.”

He believes the Supreme Court of PA clearly wants her off the case based on the defense’s claims of corruption on her part. Though some of these claims have been challenged by outside sources, they’ve still managed to tarnish her reputation and seem to have hindered her ability to rule justly in the eyes of the Supreme Court. These factors certainly helped the state decide to free the rapper from jail.

Meek was originally sentenced to 2-4 years when he violated probation by riding illegal motorbikes during a trip to New York City. The public outcry against the decision was certainly in the rapper’s favor and helped lead to this day.
