State Court May Have Lost Britney Jurisdiction

2/15/2008 7:05 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

It's the craziest thing we've ever heard, but it's probable the State court has lost jurisdiction in the Britney Spears conservatorship case.

Sources at the L.A. County Superior Court tell TMZ, "It's possible jurisdiction has shifted to the U.S. Federal District Court." How, you ask? Well yesterday, a lawyer filed legal papers in federal court asking a judge to seize control of the conservatorship case on grounds Britney was at great risk in the L.A. County Court system.

The sources say just by filing the paperwork, the federal court probably has obtained jurisdiction. We know that sounds bizarre, but legal experts tell us that is indeed what has happened.

A well-placed source in the L.A. County Court system says even if the federal court has jurisdiction, they believe the conservatorship and all orders are still in effect, but no further orders can be made or modified unless and until a federal judge kicks it back to the state.

Crazy, Crazy, Crazy. Stay tuned.

I think she just needs a half hour on Mak Hardcore's yellow sofa and all will be good. Her butt will hurt for a little while, but all should be good afterwards.

They made a very believable case. For Britney to not even be able to consult with attorneys seems against the law as well as the medical issues that are dictated by the FDA. Not to mention many other parts of the case. It seems like another court should get involved. How does KFED not get drug tested and held to the same standards while Britney gets released from the hospital on not once but 2 occasions.
