Britney Spears will remain under conservatorship, judge rules

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/.a/6a00d8341c630a53ef0133f40830c8970b-300wi A Los Angeles County Superior Court judge has decided that singer Britney Spears should remain under conservatorship, at least for now.

Her father, James Spears, was named co-conservator of his daughter's estate in 2008 after she was twice hospitalized in a psychiatric facility.

Conservatorships are granted for people deemed unable to take care of themselves or their affairs.

Under the original conservatorship plan approved that year, Spears' father may restrict and limit visitors, retain caretakers and security guards and access all of her medical records.

On Thursday, Judge Reva A. Goetz held a closed session with Spears and her father, according to City News Service. They emerged with no changes in the order, with Goetz saying they had a "very nice conversation,'' according to the wire service.

Can Mr. Spears become conservator for Lindsay Lohan too?

Must be a slow news day.

I hope Britney makes a run for it, like Polanski who actually committed a crime, but instead Britney just run from the injustice of the judge. I hate high balling, Henpecking, Henpecked, snobs, and Spears is stalked by them. What if her father is toruring her with electroshock treaments or othe legal psychological torture? I would make a run for it, and would have right from the beginning of the first trial date if I had known this were the outcome.

Another example of how courts side with Christians against non Christian citizens. I hope Britney gets free! Write the judge and make complaints.
