Britney Spears may be short on hit songs these days, but she keeps delivering headlines.

Judge Brenda Penny ruled late Wednesday that Britney Spears won’t be deposed in the ongoing conservatorship case with her father, according to Deadline. She faced the prospect of sitting for a deposition in downtown Los Angeles, during which Jamie Spears’ lawyers could have questioned her, TMZ reports.

Per the report, the judge decided that any information Jamie Spears could turn to other sources to collect information he might need to defend himself. Britney Spears accuses him of conservatorship abuse.

A lawyer for Britney Spears argued that Jamie Spears traumatized his daughter for more than 10 years, according to TMZ. Putting her under oath for a deposition could trigger more trauma, TMZ said the lawyer claimed.

Jamie Spears isn’t so lucky. He is due to be deposed August 12.

Also on Wednesday, Judge Penny tentatively ruled that Britney Spears’ ex-business mangers at Tri Star Sports and Entertainment Group would be disposed as well, per Deadline. The organization must produce accounting documents related to the pop singer’s career and finances. The judge set a follow-up hearing for August 24.

The developments came less than two weeks after the judge delivered another win for Britney Spears. The judge told father to produce documents related to alleged documents pertaining to surveillance of his pop star daughter.

In response, Jamie Spears’ lawyer said he’s “eager to testify and set the record straight.”

The world continues to turn when it comes to being Britney and her support still remains high.

E! News described the latest this way: “During a Los Angeles court hearing on July 13 that E!

Britney’s lawyer, Matthew Rosengart, called the ruling “correct” in a statement to E! News.
