Dogfight in Court Tomorrow Over Brit

2/3/2008 8:46 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned tomorrow is shaping up to be an all-out war in the Britney Spears conservatorship case. Sources say lawyers for Britney will try to convince the Commissioner that Britney "feels hatred" toward her dad, doesn't trust him and wants him removed as co-conservator.

Here's the way it's gone down this weekend. Yesterday, a lawyer for Trope and Trope (Brit's divorce/custody attorneys) went to UCLA to visit Britney. After being there a short time, one of the staff doctors asked the attorney to leave, because the co-conservators objected to the visit.

Sources say tomorrow, Trope and Trope will appear at the court hearing. Along with attorney Adam Streisand, who specializes in estate law, and ask that both co-conservators be removed. They will argue that the appointment of Jamie in particular is inappropriate given Britney's bitter feelings toward him and that Britney wants him out.

On Friday, the Commish appointed Jamie Spears and attorney Andrew Wallet as co-conservators. Trope lawyers and Streisand will ask that both conservators be replaced.

Sources say the Trope firm will not object to a conservatorship for Britney, but they'll ask that a different conservator be appointed. We're told the Trope lawyers and Streisand have not finalized who they want to replace the current conservators.

I don't think they get to decide. They can make a recommendation but it's entirely up to the commish, as you call him. Hopefully common sense will prevail.

Your'e Fired!    

Britney has gotten what Britney "wants" for a long time! Where has it gotten her! He isn't the only one in charge with making decisions. Keep taking your meds....Shut up! Be have! And "maybe" you won't die. Let some people who are older and MUCH wiser handle things. You are too too much of a MESS!

And let's not forget T&T wanted to dump Britney like a hot potato just a couple of weeks ago. Hmmm, maybe THEY should be replaced.

Oh goody goody. Trope and Trope who were the same jacks that wanted out ... now want to side with Sam and Britney to remove her Dad as conservator. With Britney's state of mind, or lack ain't gonna work.

Stand by your daughter Mr. Spears and snap a couple necks if you have to.

Good luck.

Hugs and good wishes to Britney.

Not allowing her divorce/custody attys visit, that's a little suspect. I think that a neutral team should be appointed ( just my opinion) and her family should concentrate on being her support system. They already got rid of one problem with the no-contact order....

Can someone with legal knowledge tell me how Trope can interject themselves into this battle? You know Brit was not in a position to request it? Can someone explain this to me?

May justice be served and the best intent win this battle! Britney might not have a say and I sure hope lawyers don't got to trust that her dad is looking for her best interest.
