    How lawyers for Britney and her father ramped up the rhetoric during three hour hearing

    In an impassioned exchange in the courtroom, ブリトニースピアーズ’ attorney Mathew Rosengart called Weingartenrepresenting Spears’ お父さん – a liar.

    After having been accused of making up false stories of surveillance operations, Rosengart pointed his finger at Weingarten, Rosengart yelled ‘lies!’

    彼は続けた: ‘He has attacked me. He has attacked this court. And it is intolerable,’ adding that Weingarten should be ‘admonished’.

    しかしながら, after Rosengart told the judge that his firm had evidence of the alleged surveillance, Weingarten snapped back, 言って: ‘Virtually everything that is alleged is demonstratively false or taken out of context.

    Yelling a denial about alleged eavesdropping, Weingarten stood up and yelled: ‘It didn’t happen!’

    He then moved on to request the court unseal records from the case so that the public can be given the full storyclaiming that Rosengart and Britney Spears had used the media and online platforms to ensure their side of the story was prominent.

    ‘The problem is we are fighting with our hands behind our back,’ 彼は言った.

    But Rosengart responded by calling the claims ‘disgraceful’.

    彼はそれを付け加えた: ‘We don’t think a father who loves his daughter would file to unseal her medical records.

    広告

    Rosengart is vehemently fighting 69 year-old Jamie’s request to Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny to approve payment of attorney fees he ran up as Britney’s conservator before the judge fired him from that $16,000-a-month job last September.

    Judge Penny formally ended the much-maligned conservatorship in November but several issues and loose endslike Jamie’s petition for legal fees and a similar request from the singer’s mother, Lynnestill need to be settled by the judge before Britney, 40, can assume full control of her $60 夫が逮捕された後、恥ずかしそうにマンハッタンから逃げ出した.

    Jamie denied Rosengart’s claim that he mismanaged his daughter’s finances and profited from the conservatorship.

    ‘Jamie stepped up to protect his daughter in 2008 and stepped into the role of co-conservator when Britney was unquestionably incapacitated and victimized by persons seeking to take advantage of her incapacity,’ Weingarten said in court documents.

    ‘As co-conservator, Jamie dedicated himself to protecting his daughter’s health and her estate as he has done her whole life while keeping opportunistic and wholly self-interested parties at bay.

    Weingarten objected to a request that Judge Penny sign an order officially transferring the star’s assets from temporary conservator John Zabel to Britney herself in seven days.

    He and other attorneys involved over the years in the controversial conservatorshipwho are collectively still owed millions in feesasked the judge to set up a reserve fund from which the lawyers can be paid.

    Weingarten said he and the other attorneys concerned about getting paid, ‘want to make sure the funds are there.

    ‘We must remember why the conservatorship was started in the first placeMiss Spears was irresponsible with her money.

    Rosengart objected to a reserve fund being set up, 裁判所に告げる: ‘These are Miss Spearsmoneys. She has a right to do what she wants with her money.

    He added that any attorney or other party with a claim on the conservatorship can come back to court and seek an order from the judge that it be paid.

    Judge Penny agreed and refused to order a reserve fund be set up.

    But the day in court took a heated turn after Rosengart accused Britney’s father of ‘potentially criminal conductover allegations of surveillance.

    When Weingarten claimed that the allegations were false, Rosengart pointed his finger at him and yelled ‘lies!’

    彼は続けた: ‘He has attacked me. He has attacked this court. And it is intolerable,’ adding that Weingarten should be ‘admonished’.

    Yelling a denial about alleged eavesdropping, Weingarten stood up and yelled: ‘It didn’t happen!’

    He then moved on to request the court unseal records from the case so that the public can be given the full storyclaiming that Rosengart and Britney Spears had used the media and online platforms to ensure their side of the story was prominent.

    ‘The problem is we are fighting with our hands behind our back,’ 彼は言った, but Rosengartwho accused Jamie of taking $6.3million in charges and fees while ‘mismanagingBritney’s conservatorshiplashed out at Weingarten for declaring that he intends to file a motion to unseal the details of the final termination of the conservatorship which were sealed by the judge to protect Britney’s medical and confidential records.

    Weingarten claimed that within those sealed documents is evidence that would refute Rosengart’s charges that Jamie ordered electronic spying on Britney.

    ‘This is sealed material that disproves his allegations,’ he told Judge Penny. ‘We want to unseal the recordthe public needs to know what happened.

    Calling such an unsealing ‘ethically and morally inappropriate,’ Rosengart blasted Jamie, saying it was ‘regrettable that a father who loves his daughter would unseal her health records.

    And he questioned why Jamie would want to ‘unseal years of records, exposing Britney’s private issues, having already invaded her privacy over the past decade.

    Judge Penny said a date would be determined later for the unsealing motion to be filed but she scheduled a hearing for July 27 for Jamie’s legal fees claims to be heard.

    The judge also set a hearing March 16 to hear Lynne Spearsown request for payment of $660,000 she claims she incurred in dealings with the conservatorship.
