Attorney Repping Meek Mill's Judge Suing Roc Nation and Amazon Over Documentary

A. Charles Peruto Jr., the lawyer repping the judge in Meek Mill's case, is now making moves toward a lawsuit against Amazon and Roc Nation related to a documentary interview that allegedly contained off-the-record comments.

The lawyer repping Judge Genece Brinkley is moving to sue Roc Nation and Amazon.

According to a new report from TMZ, A. Charles Peruto Jr. has filed legal documents "that will lead to a lawsuit" against both companies for what Peruto has alleged was the intentional sabotaging of an interview. Peruto was interviewed for a documentary on Meek Mill's case, a portion of which he claims to have been told was "off the record," at which point audio of him criticizing Brinkley's refusal to give Mill a new trial made her look "fucking awful."

"Let me tell you something, that was hard to do because defending this judge . . . She looks fucking awful," Peruto is heard saying in leaked audio. Peruto is now claiming that the audio was edited and that, toward the end of the allegedly off-the-record comments, he insisted Brinkley had followed the law. The documentary in question was co-produced by Roc Nation and Amazon, hence the targets of Peruto's legal claims. 

When reached by Complex, a rep for Mill declined to comment.

The report arrives during a particularly eventful month for Meek Mill, whose T.I. and Bangladesh collab "Jefe" just received the video treatment. During a recent stop on Drake's Aubrey & the Three Migos Tour, Mill took the stage to formally put all feud-related matters firmly to rest.

"This really gave me peace of mind tonight," Drake later said of the moment, adding that he was "happy" that Mill was now home. "Healing and moving forward created one of the most electric and gratifying moments of my career."
