Kardashian West visits Trump

Reality TV star Kim Kardashian West paid a visit to the White House on Wednesday to make a star-powered case to President Donald Trump and his staff on behalf of a woman serving a life sentence for drug offenses.

Kardashian West has been urging the president to pardon Alice Marie Johnson, 63, who has spent more than two decades behind bars and is not eligible for parole.

It had been unclear whether the socialite would have the chance to sit down with Trump while she was in Washington, but Trump confirmed the meeting — as he often does — via Twitter, writing, “Great meeting with @KimKardashian today, talked about prison reform and sentencing.”

He included a picture of the two in the Oval Office — Trump seated behind his desk and Kardashian West, dressed in all-black, standing to his right.

Judge denies Meek Mill request

A judge in Philadelphia denied Meek Mill’s request to remove another judge from the rapper’s case on Wednesday, saying he doesn’t have jurisdiction over the matter.

Common Pleas Court Judge Leon Tucker told Mill’s lawyers that only the state Supreme Court can decide the matter.

“We have a judge that wears the same robe that I wear, that has not recused herself and has not disqualified herself,” Tucker said. “I don’t have the jurisdiction to do that. It’s as simple as that.”

Mill’s lawyers want Judge Genece Brinkley off his case, alleging she’s been waging a vendetta against the rapper, including sending him to prison for the probation violations. She has strongly defended her impartiality.

His lawyers said after the hearing they would file a motion with the state high court

Puppet movie gets legal win

A judge in New York has ruled against the makers of Sesame Street in a dispute with the distributor of the upcoming Melissa McCarthy movie, The Happytime Murders.

U.S. District Judge Vernon Broderick ruled Wednesday that distributor STX Productions can continue to use the tagline “No sesame. All street” in promoting the R-rated film, which features Muppet-like puppets in a comedic crime story.

Sesame Workshop sued last week, seeking to end the inclusion of the tagline in promotional materials ahead of the film’s Aug. 17 release.
