Conservatorship Hearing in Full Swing




Britney Spears' days of media-deluged court appearances may be behind her, but it's not quite case closed for the pop star.

Attorneys for the singer are currently meeting in the chambers of Court Commissioner Reva Goetz at the Los Angeles Superior Courthouse to discuss either extending or terminating her father's current conservatorship over her estate.

While neither Spears nor papa Jamie are present for the session, her brother Bryan Spears, a cotrustee of Britney's assets, is in the courtroom.

As yet there's no word on the outcome of today's closed-door hearing, though sources told E! News just yesterday that despite rumors the 26-year-old could regain control of her estate after today, the conservatorship is unlikely to be dissolved until the end of the year, with Goetz expected to extend the order.

Attorneys for Jamie Spears, largely if not wholly credited with his daughter's personal and professional resuscitation, are expected to request the extension to last through later this fall.

Also on the docket for today's hearing is the Spears family's temporary restraining order over Sam Lutfi.

Sources told E! News this week that the Spears patriarch was unlikely to make a move to make the order against Lutfi permanent - not that he is welcome in the Spears family's life.

Should Jamie's conservatorship get extended, the restraining order would be redundant since, as acting conservator, Jamie is already well within his power, restraining order or not, to determine who gets one-on-one time with Britney.
