Britney Spears' family just scored a HUUUUGE victory in their legal war with Sam Lutfi -- the judge just THREW OUT Sam's entire case against the family ... finding he presented no evidence that they ever did anything wrong.

Lutfi had filed a lawsuit -- claiming the various members of the Spears family had defamed him, attacked him and breached a management contract he said he had with Britney.

During his testimony, Lutfi slammed the Spears family ... arguing that Britney was an out-of-control drug addict ... and her family wrongly painted him as the villain. 

But today, before the case even went to the jury, the judge decided Lutfi had no case whatsoever against any members of the Spears family ... and tossed his case out of court.

Lutfi tells TMZ he plans to appeal the judge's decision.

Love it! He wanted to settle but the family refused. Now he's got nothing and the appeal won't be considered. Awesome news. He's a leach!

I don't think Lutfi is an angel but you all need to realize that Britney is far from being one as well.

Her family/team has been working overtime in order to repair her image and they've done so at the cost of everyone. They need to come to terms with the fat that Britney is not mentally stable and they need to get her the help that she needs. Instead, in an attempt to hide this, they go on to lie and blame everyone else but Britney for her downfall.

I mean really? Blaming Justin Timberlake?

Then they pay the nanny to blatantly lie and say that Brit wasn't taking meth when everyone knew she was.

The lies and deceit continue to be spewed from Britney's team and you guys eat it all up.

I feel bad for Lutfi in a sense that his name truly was defamed and that can be seen by simply scrolling through some of the comments.

I don't believe that he was in the wrong or at fault for Britney's crisis as she was a grown woman and should've done what she needed to do for herself and for her children. If this was a man in Britney's place, you guys would have no sympathy, so quit.

Finally the stupid Judge saw the light, or I mean the backlash from the public.

Defamed him? How could a low life like Lufti be defamed? And now they are going to sue him for all their attorney's fees--he just needs to get a job and move on.

Well done Judge. This is the way clowns like this should be treated, I'm hoping he owes for the courtrooms time, and trouble.

Well good for her!

Unfortunately though, she still isn't allowed to make any of her own choices, she and her paid fiancée aren't in love and he is only there to keep her on a tight leash on her and keep a watchful eye to make sure she does her meds and doesn't start slipping back into street drugs and partying. Blind gossip has a lot of blinds about her and to say her situation is sad, doesn't even come close. She is just a walking, talking puppet. This case was won but in the end, she still loses :(

I think the truth behind the reason the C-ship will never end is because she cannot be trusted to stick to her med regiment and she cannot be trusted to keep away from drugs. On top of that, she cannot be trusted to make wise financial choices and keep on her career. There is too much at stake and her handlers will not let her ruin herself and career. Sad that grown adult still cannot make good choices. Very dysfunctional.

Lufti is a parasite! The only reason he's appealing is the same reason he took them to court to begin with - fatal attraction!

Excellent. It restores my faith in LA Judges. He should have to pay all court costs and lawyers fees.
