The problem using a DVM is there may be so much leakage current, you'll get 12v at the socket, but nowhere near enough current to light the bulb. Test using a 12v test lamp would be best. Also, this will make doubly sure if it's a ground problem or not. I've had issues with the taillight housing not being well grounded! Especially after painting. 

And I'm with Frank as far as where to look next. Make sure the connectors are fully mated, etc.

The same wire as the turn signal.

So, if the turn signal lights the right rear taillamp properly, and the 
brake does not light the right rear taillamp, the problem is in the turn 
signal switch.
