Judge Throws Out Challenge to Britney Spears Case

by at .

A federal judge ruled the U.S. Courts have no business in Britney Spears' conservatorship case and kicked it back to California state court.

Federal District Judge Philip Gutierrez ruled that Jon Eardley, the N.Y. lawyer who claimed to represent Britney Spears, but who we think is working with Sam Lutfi, "had no authority to remove the case from state court."

The judge added:

"Mr. Eardley is not Ms. Spears attorney and acted improperly by removing her conservatorship proceeding to federal court."

The challenge to Britney Spears' conservatorship case was struck down.

The court did not award Spears' conservatorship - Britney's father, Jamie Spears, and his attorney, Andrew Wallet - attorneys fees, which they sought.

This means it will cost Britney around $40,000 in legal bills for what turned out to be a bogus case, but then again, she makes like $730,000 a month.

She'll live. Fortunately, thanks to her father and brother, Bryan Spears, stepping in of late, she'll live more normally minus bottom-feeders like Sam.
