Jamie Spears' Legal Control of Britney Extended; Strange New Twist in Case Reeks of Sam Lutfi

by at . Comments

The Commissioner in Britney Spears' conservatorship case has extended Jamie Spears' tenure as conservator until the next hearing, March 10.

The judge granted a request to have Britney's older brother, Bryan Spears, named as the trustee of his sister's trust. Bryan, 30, and attorney Ivan Taback have been granted the authority to serve as co-trustees.

That was to be expected, but this next part? Out of nowhere.

A New York lawyer has filed papers in Federal court, asking that Britney's conservatorship case be taken away from L.A. County Superior Court.

Attorney Jon Eardley claims Britney Spears' rights have been snatched away from her and she has been cut off from life as she knows it.

Eardley claims that "It is doubtful that Ms. Spears can receive equal protection and a fair trial or hearing in the custody proceedings because of the intense media scrutiny of what would normally be private aspects of a person's life."

Jon Eardley wants an injunction issued promptly in federal court, asking the judge for the power to protect Britney Spears in the custody case as well.

The documents say the "deprivation of her civil liberties by the conservator is so severe as to interfere with the effectiveness of the scheduled medications that are covered by the Food, Drug and Cosmetics Act."

Legal experts say this last part is the attempt to get the Federal court to accept jurisdiction of the case, effectively giving Jamie Spears the boot.

It's not clear who Eardley is working for in filing this. Yet if you ask us, it seems quite likely that you-know-who is behind it.

Sam Lutfi and his PR spin doctor, Michael Sands, must have something to do with the filing. Britney's confidant and self-proclaimed manager is at odds with Jamie.

Attorney Jeryll Cohen, representing Jamie Spears, says they still haven't been able to formally serve Sam Lutfi with a restraining order against him - he somehow has avoided it despite partying in public places with Alli Sims and Perez Hilton.

Either way, we'd be surprised if he weren't behind this strange filing. We know Osama Lutfi well enough to know he doesn't give up power easily.
