Britney Ordered to Court -- Or Else

10/3/2007 9:24 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned L.A. County Commissioner Scott Gordon has ordered Britney and K-Fed to court at the next hearing, set for October 26.
Britney
We've learned on Monday, Commissioner Gordon said he would not order the parties to court, but made it clear that it would be a good idea for them to show. Sources say Britney's lawyer, Sorrell Trope, asked Britney to show but she wouldn't. Kevin showed up, along with his lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan. It was the first appearance in court by either one. Britney spent some of her afternoon at a Shell gas station in the San Fernando Valley.

Britney's lawyer argued that the ruling on Monday was unfair and he asked to reinstate the 50/50 custody arrangement. The judge declined to do it.

The next hearings are set for October 26 and November 26. Britney and K-Fed must be there for the October 26 hearing.

Wow! She's still preening for the attention of the paparazzi. Anyone else who didn't want to be bothered would wear shades and ignore these guys.

Brit, we're pulling for you.

I have absolutely NO doubts that she is not going to show up on the 26th (can we say "civil contempt?"), and her newest attorney's going to petition to withdraw. This guy's too respected to put up with this fun and games for long.
