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.

It *does* look like mama and daddy are doing good for her. However, I still think when the payday ain't coming, the're out of there. They can get more money pimpin' out the undrage prego for the big bucs now. I mean someone needs to pay the bills, ya know? Yeah, they probably love her, she's their kid, but i'm thinking they love the money more. Just sayin'

People don't you get it....there's a certain mafia whose after Britney's money? An innocent and psychologically-vulnerable young woman and mother (who has lost her children) connected with a very corrupt man, Lutfi, et al., who were attempting to take-over her entire life and fortune (just like the woman who died one year ago and whose son died 1-1/2 years ago). This mafia has infiltrated our entire legal system from lawyers to judges, field of psychiatry, entertainment industry, et al.

Nobody is looking out after Britney's greatest interest except her parents right now....don't judge any of them but pray for Britney, her children, and her parents from this point forward!

Quote: 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. Unquote.


Let’s just see how long their 15 minutes of “shame” will last. The court of public opinion will kill them.

Like they really care about Brit, and now, Pa and bro are not going to be happy.
