Jamie Spears objected to Britney’s request claiming she may be mentally unfit to make decisions in the case. Despite his opposition, the court sided with Britney and grated the request to hire her own counsel.
The order stated, “The Court finds that sufficient evidence has been provided to grant the matter on calendar this date based upon reading the moving papers and consideration of all presented evidence. The Court overrules the objections.”
The petition was filed by Britney’s court-representative Samuel D. Ingram.
