Crazy New Legal Papers in Britney Case

2/14/2008 8:22 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

In a bizarre twist, a lawyer in NYC has filed legal papers in Federal court, asking that Britney's conservatorship case be taken away from L.A. County Superior Court.

In the documents obtained by TMZ, attorney Jon Eardley claims Britney's rights have been snatched away from her and she has been cut off from life as she knows it.

Eardley claims, "It is doubtful that Ms. Spears can receive equal protection and a fair trial or hearing in the custody proceedings because of the intense media scrutiny of what would normally be private aspects of a person's life." It appears Eardley wants an injunction issued in federal court, asking the judge for the power to protect Brit in the custody case as well.

The documents allege "the deprivation of her civil liberties by the conservator is so severe as to interfere with the effectiveness of the scheduled medications that are covered by the Food, Drug and Cosmetics Act." This appears to be an attempt to get the Federal court to accept jurisdiction.

It is unclear on whose behalf Eardley is acting. We're told Sam Lutfi and his spokesman, Michael Sands, have something to do with the filing, though the exact nature of their involvement is unclear.

Stay tuned.

IT'S KIND OF OBVIOUS THAT BRITNEY CAN'T DRESS HERSELF PROPERLY; CAN'T TEND TO HER PERSONAL SELF, BECAUSE SHE AND HER HAIR ALWAYS LOOKS SO DIRTY; SO I WOULD ASSUME SHE CAN'T PROPERLY HANDLE HER MEDICAL AND FINANCIAL AFFAIRS. SHE NEEDS HER FAMILY TO LOOK AFTER HER NOW, NOT SOME HANGER-ONERS LIKE SAM LUFTI OR THAT CUTIE PIE ADNAN. I HEAR ADNAN NEEDS TO DO SOME SPLAININ' WHO THE TWO WOMEN HE WAS WITH THE OTHER DAY WERE. WHERE WAS BRITNEY?

Not just a bit sick JurisD...very sick. I'm surprised the police don't get involved. If she is that sick then doesn't the law say she can't even consent to sexual intercourse? Isn't it against the law to have sex with someone that is "gravely disabled mentally?" how could they possibly allow adnan to sleep with her at the moment? why don't the courts do something to stop jamie & lynne from letting this taking advantage of her in this state happen??

No, they're allowed to grant her permission to have sexual intercourse (it's called the "Writ of Coitus"). But the co-conservator (lawyer Wallet) has to sign off on it, of course. Adnan actually went to his office yesterday and completed the papers. He had to state the type of sex they would have; the number of times (a range of numbers usually suffices); what type of contraception they would use; and whether or not he would call in the morning. Then, once the paperwork was in order, and each of the co-conservators signed it (Britney technically didn't have to give consent, so her signature wasn't required), they filed it with the Court Clerk, who then stamped, initialed it, and filed it in the docket.

Fortunately, they were able to get to the court house by 5 yesterday. I hear there was quite a line from conservators filing Writs of Coitus on behalf of their charges for Valentine's Day!

*****************************************************

I'm talking about the hormonal workups, like they finally did on Marie Osmond... they got her hormonal system fixed and she was able to get off the mental drugs.... they don't check the relationship between the thyroid, cortisol, pituitary gland and the brain nearly as often as they should, with women or even in adolescents... and they should, It is easier to just reach for a pill than find the root cause of the problem.... and they are inter-related,.

You are R I G H T on the money with your A N A L Y S I S!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In my opinion, American doctors are "paid off" so to say by the powerful pharmaceutical companies. Doctors are quick to give prescriptions out, probably even more so to wealthy celebrities like Heath Ledger's & Britney Spears, because they are "BUSY" people. It truly takes A LOT of time & medical tests to find the biological root cause of certain medical problems (ie. depression, post-partum, insomnia,etc...)

>>>>>I pray Britney and other people have happier success stories like Lisa Rinna, Brooke Shield, Marie Osmond, Grey's Anatomy star rather than Heath Ledger, Anna Nicole Smith,etc...MORE PUBLICITY SHOULD BE ON THE POSITIVE STORIES NOT THE NEGATIVE ONES!!!

Apparently Eardley is THE ONLY person that thinks he has a case.....

"...On Friday, a Superior Court spokesperson said that the existing conservatorship and other orders "are still in effect," and that court officials are unaware of any federal court action or scheduled hearings on the matter.

"The saddest part [of the legal maneuvering] is it is all to [Britney's] detriment," says a legal insider. "The limited conservatorship puts in place medical care and protection of her assets that may be put at risk by the distraction and expense of having to get such an opportunistic and counterproductive action dismissed."

In fact, legal experts say Eardley's legal gambit is unlikely to succeed. "It's not like the judge read papers filed by one side and made decisions without giving each side due process," says Loyola Law School Professor Stan Goldman, who is not involved in the case.

"It would be quite surprising if the federal court granted a hearing on this," he adds, "and a total shocker if it ruled against the conservatorship."..."

So really, the basis of what this law suit is saying is that her medication won't work right if she isn't able to run around like a crazy lunatic? Really, that's what they are saying. The medication won't work unless she can go back to "life as she knows it." Never, never, never have I ever heard such a ridiculous claim. Tell me exactly, in medical terms, how going to the Rite Aid at 1:30 am for lipstick, or Starbucks at midnight for a "jolt" of caffiene or stopping at a gas station somewhere in LA around 11:00 pm for no other reason than to have the paparrazzi swarm her, tell me medically, how that is supposed to help her medications work better. Get a frickin grip people! Yep, I'm sure "life as she knows it" has changed drastically, but it needed to!

And to add, while James Spears is running the conservatorship, Britney can NOT hire her own attorney. So the paperwork filed in this suit states "Attorney for Britney J. Spears." How the heck can that be? Who hired him? Britney can't.
