Britney SpearsThe lawyers in Britney Spears' conservatorship case went to court this morning to ask the judge for... what else???? They want to hire more lawyers to defend Britney.

Brit's mouthpiece claims the singer needs two civil lawyers to defend her in Sam Lutfi's defamation case against Britney and her family. Here's the deal. The two lawyers will cost a grand total of $935 an hour. The judge gave the green light, so the Bank of Brit is fully open for business.

Spears is expected to keep the legal profession afloat during these hard economic times.
