Federal Judge Says It Seems Bogus To Him

2/20/2008 5:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

A Federal judge in the Britney conservatorship case has issued a tentative ruling that the move to make a federal case out of it is ridiculous.
Click to launch documents!
Judge Philip Gutierrez set a deadline of February 29 for Britney's so-called lawyer, Jon Eardley, to explain why on Earth the federal court has any business getting involved in Britney's mental affairs.

The court said it sure seems the Feds have no jurisdiction to interfere, and unless Eardley can convince the judge to the contrary, the case will go back to State court on Feb 29.

Stay tuned ...

Thank you for the wisdom of the judicial system. Would not surprise me at all if Lutfi is behind this. Time to move on Sam and find another sugar mama.

Leave it to the local courts. The Feds don't wanna touch this mess!! They have enuf problems of their own! Now, if the Feds want to tackle the mental problems of BUSH, then I am right behind them!!!

TMZ, can you put up Eardleys points to the judge on the 29th. I wanna have a good laugh at why he thinks this case has a good basis. Please also put up the juge's reponse - that should be entertaining enough!

Glad this federal judge is following the law. Where's the federal question? There isn't one, hence no federal jurisdiction.

I'm sure Lutfi is behind this whole misguided endeavor. He must be in a state of total desperation. I guess he's run out of people to scam, drug and verbally abuse.

This never was going to go to the Federal Courts--never will. Give up Eardley and Lufti. You lose.
