Judge rules Britney Spears will not have to sit for deposition in ongoing legal battle with her father
The singer’s father will also have to produce all documents requested and appear for a deposition, Rosengart said outside of the courthouse, calling it “another very good day for Britney.”
CNN has reached out to Jamie Spears’ attorney for comment on the ruling.
“We hope (Jamie Spears) will accept his losses and simply move on and leave his daughter alone,” Rosengart told CNN in a statement. “That is what any decent man, what any decent father would do.”
The Grammy-winner was in a court-ordered conservatorship for 13 years before it was terminated in November. Spears’ father acted as her co-conservator from the conservatorship’s inception in 2008. This put him in charge of her finances and, at some points, her medical decisions.
“This is not about Britney, this is beyond Britney,” Rosengart said while surrounded by supporters of the bill. “There is a lot of people in the country and in the state who are not free and are subjected to forced abusive conservatorships. And that’s something I look forward to working with legislators on, both in California and Washington DC.”
