Court will let Britney Spears farce continue



Tbdbritneyspears022008 Incremental changes in court cases are not fun, especially when they involve Britney Spears, but you’ll be glad to know that Court Commissioner Scott Gordon has denied her lawyer’s request for a gag order, so we’ll be stuck listening to this mess for weeks to come.

Brit’s new attorney, Anne Kiley, asked Gordon to keep the lawyers involved from blabbing because it was “emotionally and physically” dangerous for Spears, the AP reports. No argument here, but we didn’t go to law school. Kiley wanted to keep her client’s business out of the headlines, but likely fearing that would mean he’d have nothing to talk about at dinner parties, Gordon said the public has a right to know court orders.

For the record, Kevin Federline’s attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, argued against the gag order. Notice Kaplan’s always the one in photos and on TV. TMZ adds that the lawyers involved could not come to an agreement on several issues, so Britney still won’t be able to visit her children Sean and Jayden. We’ll tell you more in another incremental update soon.
