The fate of the incapacitated Britney Spears has been followed by the whole world for several months. The star decided to fight for herself and gave testimony to the court in June, in which she argued that her rights had been violated many times during the 13-year guardianship.
Britney Spears is fighting for freedom. “Every day matters”
A breakthrough in this case was the decision of Los Angeles judge Brenda Penny, who in mid-July allowed Spears to hire her own lawyer. Mathew Rosengart, whose law firm now represents the star’s interests, set to work sharply.
On Thursday, August 5, he filed a motion that the judge expedite Britney’s father’s removal from his probation role earlier than September 29, when the singer’s next hearing is due to take place. The singer’s attorney justified his request as follows: “Although the two-month wait for a hearing may seem insignificant in the context of 13 years, Britney Spears should not be forced to continue living her current trauma, resulting in insomnia and suffering. Every day matters,” he quotes the court conclusion. People service.
