A judge ruled on Wednesday that Britney Spears does not need to be impeached by her father’s lawyers in the post-conservatory era. But a lawyer for the elder Spears said he will ask for an appeal against that and two other court decisions.
Britney Spears is challenging a bookkeeping and fee request and her father’s lawyers want to investigate her views on the topics and ask her for relevant documents.
Los Angeles Superior Court judge Brenda Penny upheld a preliminary ruling she made on July 13 when she discovered the entertainer’s statement was irrelevant to the information requested by Jamie Spears’ counsel.
The judge said the information could be obtained through written questions to Britney Spears and testimony from other parties.
The judge had previously rejected Jamie Spears’ requests for documents from his daughter on the grounds of relevance and on Wednesday also rejected his lawyers’ request to fire an expert hired by Kroll, a private detective agency that was hired by the 40-year-old singer’s lawyers. investigate Jamie Spears’ actions while co-curating his daughter’s business interests for many years.
Jamie Spears’ lawyer Alex Weingarten said he will appeal all three decisions because his client is legally entitled to the two statements and the documents.
Weingarten said Britney Spears will be where she is on Wednesday because of the 13-year conservatory and her father’s efforts.
“Mr. Spears is proud of what he has done for his daughter by protecting her from Svengalis, Rasputins and other unscrupulous people,” Weingarten said.
However, Britney Spears’ lawyer Mathew Rosengart said that if Jamie Spears loves his daughter as he says he will accept the judge’s ruling and move on.
A statement from the singer would only “traumatize her again,” said Rosengart, who also attacked Weingarten’s comments that the entire Britney Spears lawsuit could one day be unsealed. Rosengart said the unsealing would make the artist’s medical records and other private information public.
