Supporters Rally Outside Los Angeles Courthouse as Britney Spears Is Granted Right to Choose Lawyer

Supporters of Britney Spears gathered outside the Stanley Mosk Courthouse in Los Angeles on July 14, as her conservatorship case returned to court. The singer’s request to hire her own attorney was granted on Wednesday, according to reports.

Spears condemned her conservatorship to a judge three weeks ago in rare public testimony.

Jamie P Spears, Britney’s father, was granted control over his daughter’s personal and financial affairs in a court-ordered conservatorship in 2008, following apparently erratic behavior, including shaving her head and driving with her infant son on her lap.
