Judge Brinkley, who has been barred to speak publicly about the case, appears that she will not recuse herself from the case.
After a five-month campaign by supporters to get him out, the state Supreme Court directed the Philadelphia judge who jailed him to immediately issue an order releasing him on unsecured bail. Meek is scheduled to appear in court in June, where Meek and his legal team will fight to get his drug and weapon case thrown out, given that the testimony of Reginald V. Graham, who arrested Meek in 2007, caused many to question his credibility. He received a thunderous ovation from the Wells Fargo Center crowd upon introduction and was seated courtside, next to 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin and comedian Kevin Hart.
A day after rapper Meek Mill was released from jail, community groups made their voices loud and clear Wednesday morning outside of Philadelphia City Hall. "While the past five months have been a nightmare, the prayers, visits, calls, letters and rallies have helped me stay positive", Mill wrote.
The district attorney, Larry Krasner, who was elected a year ago on a platform of criminal justice reform, told NBC News this month that allegations of faulty police work have changed how prosecutors see Mill's case and others.
"I understand that many people of colour across the country don't have that luxury and I plan to use my platform to shine a light on those issues", Meek Mill said in Tuesday's statement.
He said he would focus his attention on getting his convictions overturned, and that he looks forward to resuming his music career.

Stay Away From All Forms of Romaine Lettuce, CDC Warns
It is because of this new information that the CDC has expanded its warning to include all types of romaine lettuce. If unsure whether the store-bought lettuce is romaine, the CDC recommends throwing it away.
A post shared by Meek Mill (@meekmill) on April 24, 2018 at 1:09pm PDTWhy was Meek Mill in jail? "I'm 30 now", the rapper said.
Meek Mill, whose real name is Robert Williams, was arrested in August 2017 for reckless driving.
"The frustration for me is, why is he still there? In doing wrong, he has paid for it - he has done his time".
In the end, Meek Mill's legal drama is far from over. "He was incarcerated unjustly and caught in a probation trap for years by a broken system". He pointed out that a "random misstep" could bring consequences greater than the crime. Many say the probation and parole structure disproportionately impacts black and Latino communities, which results in mass incarceration of minorities.
Shoutout to JAY-Z for sticking by Meek's side, during his sentence, though the case isn't over. The hip hop star was arrested previous year after he was involved in a fight, then arrested again for popping wheelies on a dirt bike.
