Mentally, Brit is Out to Lunch

2/4/2008 7:12 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

In court today, a court-appointed lawyer told the Commissioner he visited Britney yesterday just after 5:00 PM PT in the hospital. He concluded that Brit is not currently competent enough to understand the nature of the current legal proceedings, nor does she appreciate the impact that it has on her life.

The lawyer also said Britney lacks capacity to retain a lawyer.

That could be a big problem for Adam Streisand, who is trying to prove that Britney hired him.

They probably have Britney drugged up to the max in that psych unit.That's why she supposedly isn't competent now.

Hey,she acted a little nuts while driving around Los angeles, but she was NOT incompetent!

Her parents and Kfed want her MONEY!!!!

A court appointed lawyer can't make that call...only a psychiatrist can. I sure hope greedy daddy gets knocked off his perch.

She is RESTING.

Sam has been speeding her up for the past month.

Making her beg for bits and pieces.

Exploiting her vulnerability.

Pushing her farther from her dreams of a loving home for her family.

She lost her babies, who she loved. She's incompetent! She doesn't even speak normally anymore. She gets lost while driving. She let's paps party with her. She does not understand how this affects her life.

In California, lawyers are required to have a written retainer agreement signed by their client. Since Britney has been hospitalized and Mr. Streisand supposedly cannot get into a locked psychiatric hospital wing to see her, how did he get a retainer agreement signed by her? That doesn't even approach the second question of whether or not Britney would have present legal capacity to sign such an agreement. Third, she had 2 co-conservators who have the exclusive power to deal with contracts and agreements on her behalf. So, IMHO, Mr. Streisand is not qualified to speak on her behalf in court, even to express her wishes regarding appointment of a conservator. Her retainer agreement with Trope and Trope is likely limited to representing her in family law matters; not a general retainer for all legal matters.
