A court decision on a potential retrial for Meek Mill's controversial case has been moved to later this month. News of the delay comes on the same day Meek was in attendance for a hearing on the case's future at the Criminal Justice Center in Center City, per CBS Philadelphia.
In a statement, attorney Joe Tacopina said Meek and his team had hoped for a decision of that nature to be announced at Tuesday's hearing, though they remain optimistic about the outcome of the newly scheduled Aug. 27 date.
"While we had hoped that this matter would end today, we remain confident that justice will prevail in Meek's case once and for all," Tacopina said.
Afterwards, Meek thanked his fans and the city of Philadelphia for coming out to support him.
The 2008 drug and weapon charges conviction was tossed out by Pennsylvania Superior Court last month, with the ruling stating the decision was inspired by evidence showing that a cop who testified against Meek had questionable credibility given his track record. Additional controversy has arisen from the lengthy proceedings due to Judge Genece Brinkley, who's been accused of bias and a personal agenda by Meek's defense.
Meek Mill was among the guests at Day 2 of OVO Fest 2019, the Drake-led festival that also saw special appearances from Cardi B and Chris Brown, and more.
Earlier this month, Meek stopped by Stephen Colbert's Late Show to go deep on his continued fight for criminal justice reform and his recently announced deal with Roc Nation.
