Allred's "Secret Witness" Can't Stay Secret

9/7/2007 1:37 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Gloria AllredJudge Scott Gordon will let the "secret witness" try and weigh in on matters Britney, but ain't gonna be no secret.

The judge said the witness would only be considered if he files a written declaration and only if he reveals his identity, and maybe not even then.

The guy is someone who worked with Britney after she left rehab.

Allred told TMZ "It appears we hit a raw nerve with Miss Wasser, Britney Spears' attorney. We think she would like to prevent our client from testifying. Perhaps she has a sense of what he might say."

if whoever it is is actually a witness to something why would they not allow his testimony? Brit's lawyers would have their chance with him to....so why not???

Gloria Allred is neither party's lawyer. She has no standing in this matter...why is she even allowed in the courtroom?

sjn--its not that Brit's team doesn't want the person, its just that it isn't fair in a trial to have surprise witnesses, because its procedure to give each side preperation for their defense or whatever. They have to reveal who it is first.

It's probably Larry, but we already know he was served, so how would that be a surprise?

Erin, I was thinking the same thing. Why does she (Allred) always try to get in the mix?

Good. At least they are dealing with a responsible Judge who can put some end to this crap. They (Fed's team) are really trying every angle, here, which is disgusting. If this person had so much damaging information, then they would have no problem showing their face..... they don't want to b/c they don't want to have the testimony to be rebutted...

Exactly Michelle.

What's so important that this witness needs to be so secret?
It's a child custody case, not a mobster on trial and he needs protection.
I mean, what's the BFD. Write a statement to the court and be interviewed and take the stand.

I wish Gloria Allred would go back to being a serious lawyer, like she used to be, instead of being a celebrity-chasing embarrassment to the profession the way she is now. She knows good & well that the only way a witness would be allowed to keep his/her identity secret would be in a situation where s/he could show, by clear and convincing evidence, that his/her life would be in danger if it were exposed (this almost NEVER happens in civil hearings or trials, BTW). As for the witness, if what he's got to say is really that important, then he ought to man up and step forward for those children's sake. Otherwise, it's looking more and more like another publicity ploy. I think it's probably in the children's best interests if they're not with Britney, but if she does lose them, it ought not be by legal chicanery.

What in the world is the witness scared of? That Britney will get mad & take an umbrella to his car?
