    Default Judge questions moving Britney Spears' case

    A federal judge wants an attorney who claims to represent Britney Spears to explain why he believes her conservatorship belongs in federal court.

    Attorney Jon Eardley argues that the terms of the conservatorship, which occurs when a court determines someone cannot take care of themselves or their affairs, violate the pop star's civil rights.

    Judge Philip Gutierrez on Tuesday ordered Eardley to explain by Feb. 29 why the federal court should intervene in a probate case. The order came after attorneys for Spears' father, James Spears, who was named her temporary conservator Feb. 1, argued in a motion that the conservatorship should remain in state court.

    James Spears' team argued that a state Superior Court commissioner had previously found that the singer did not have the capacity to retain counsel, and that conservatorship matters do not fall under federal jurisdiction.

    Eardley filed papers Thursday to move Spears' probate case to federal court. A message left at his office Wednesday was not returned.

    The commissioner placed Spears under a conservatorship after she was taken to a psychiatric hospital twice this year. Her father and attorney Andrew Wallet were named co-conservators of her estate.

    Attorney Jeffrey Wexler also asked the judge to require Eardley to pay James Spears' attorney fees and any extra expenses incurred from arguments over the request to move the case to federal court.

    Personally, I think it should remain in the state court. It isn't like her father just popped up out of nowhere and filed for conservatorship for no reason. Girlfriend is loony-tunes. Don't waste the federal court's time. Just my opinion, of course.

    This is bullshit.

    John Eardley is connected to Michael Sands who is Sam Lufti's publicist. It's not hard to see who really set this up. Sam is trying to prolong and block decisions through Sands and Eardley.

    Eardley should have to pay every cent of Jamie's attorney fees and any incurred cost due to his sly tactics. Under the conseveratorship Britney can't retain counsel, and when in hopsital she was deemed incompetent to do so.
