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 ...

All the other media outlets are now reporting that there is no such investigation and the LAPD have gone on the record that SAM IS NOT BEING INVESTIGATED BY THE LAPD FOR ANYTHING.

You all must be so disappointed...you wanted him hung without a trial...weirdos.

They can't blame Sam for her showing her private parts to the public this week...who are mom and dad going to try to use as a scapegoat for her current crazy behaviour??? LOL...CAN"T BLAME SAM FOR THAT, CAN'T BLAME HIM FOR HER FLASHING WITH PARIS BEFORE SHE MET HIM EITHER!!! Oh, don't worry mom and dad, the people here don't care, they even blame Sam for her 1st marriage...lol.

The conservatorship is temporary; at most, it extends only so long as she is disabled. The attorneys are "fighting" federal jurisdiciton because it is intering with the state probate court's power; it is legally wrong; and it puts Britney's estate at risk. I have yet to see any indication that Britney's father acting in any way other than a fiduciary--indeed, he is acting just as a good father would be expected to for a disabled child. Worries about him wanting to drain her estate seem entirely unwarranted.

He's just another Idiot    

Judy, you must come from a not so loving family. The Spears are trying to protect their daughter from all the thugs and slugs out there. That's what a family is for. Are you so dense that you can't understand that Britney is mentally ill and cannot make decisions on her own? She will thank her parents some day for possibly saving her life. I'm very glad that they came to her rescue.

DBK.. thanks for all your posts! Very informative!

In regards to people gettin worked up ...well that's just Sam Lutfi, Sands etc. trying to redirect the flow of the posters!
Most of us ignore the baiting and sometimes Lutfi or some other moron will use someone's posting name, but most of us know the Faker when we see it!

Thank-you lawyers! (except that one fake one)

I hear what you guys said about all the attorneys getting paid, but I bet if you bump that up against the money she spent before the conservatorship was put in place, you would see that she was spending tons more money on friends and frivolous, unnecessary things every single day....

I still think that her father is only trying to protect her from slimeballs and users in her fragile state. I do think that they will allow her small bits of access and freedom during the next hearing though and work up to full access.

Stop Blaming the Paps For Everything Brit Does    

97. la Laa....i hate to disappoint you, and you don't have to be a lawyer to be able to figure this one out for yourself...just because someone said something happened, doesn't mean it did happen. Ever heard of hearsay??

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

Judy ... I hate to disappoint you, perhaps you have to be a lawyer to know this yourself ... but if the party against whom the hearsay testimony is offered does not object to it on hearsay grounds, it comes in as evidence. Sam would have to appear in court to object to the testimony that Lynne gives about what she heard him say. OOOPS! If he shows up at the hearing, regardless whether he is served, he has submitted to its jurisdiction and then the court could enter a restraining order against him. Hell will freeze over before that happens.

I have to get a tissue...
