There have been no changes in the conservatorship between Britney and co-conservators Jamie Spears & Andrew Wallet after a hearing at the Los Angeles County Superior Court this morning, excluding the allowance by Court Commissioner Reva Goetz to sell Britney's Beverly Hills home in the Summit. According to E! News Bureau Correspondent Claudia Rosenbaum at Eonline.com, "the status hearing in Spears' conservatorship case maintained the status quo," meaning there have been no changes. "While Spears herself was not present, attorneys for both her and father Jamie Spears appeared before Goetz to deal with matters related to the conservatorship. After a two-hour closed-door meeting, Goetz stuck with a July 31 court date, when it will be decided if Spears remains in need of a conservator," reports E! News.
"Should both sides fail to agree to extend his reign by the next hearing, then Goetz is expected to set a trial, which will determine whether the singer should be placed under the permanent care of a conservator. Goetz ordered Spears' counsel, Samuel Ingham, to confer with the singer to decide whether she would agree to waive her right to a jury trial."
"Goetz ordered Spears' counsel, Samuel Ingham, to confer with the singer to decide whether she would agree to waive her right to a jury trial. 'My client is going to be out of town until next Monday,' Ingham told the court. "Britney is expected to be out of town this week, attending the birth of younger sis Jamie Lynn's baby girl according to People.com. "He then informed the commissioner he needed more time to meet up with his client and discuss their options. Goetz also set a time schedule for attorneys to prepare financial and psychological information on Spears."
After a two-hour closed-door meeting, Commissioner Goetz still plans on the July 31st court date, where it will be decided if Britney needs a permanent conservatorship or not.
