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.
