Judge Postpones Decision On Britney Spears Conservatorship

A Los Angeles Judge today put off further discussion about when Britney Spears might resume her life, free of a court-ordered conservatorship.

The decision came as a result of a wrinkle that appeared in the case on Tuesday, revealing how Spears’ complex legal matters remain unresolved when she is not allowed to testify about them.

The latest development in the singer’s conservatorship saga came as a result of a business relationship between Spears and entertainment executive Johnny Wright. Attorneys for Wright were in court based on an ongoing Florida lawsuit with her former manager Wright regarding what appears to be a contract dispute.

In order for the suit to go forward, they wanted Spears to sit for a deposition.

Wright’s lead attorney, arguing via speakerphone, said “We have seen appearances where she seems to be doing so good.”

But Spears’ father Jamie, who is one of the executors of her estate, filed an ex-parte motion stating Britney is not ready to undergo a deposition.

Judge Reva Goetz ruled in favor of a protective order for Spears, saying, “The capacity issue remains open.”
