Judge Rules Britney Spears’ Dad Must Sit For Deposition

Media Take Out Staff |

A judge has rules that Britney Spears’ father Jamie Spears must be deposed in the investigation into his role as conservator.

Variety reports that Judge Brenda Penny ordered Spears’ father to produce all documents related to electronic surveillance.

The singer may be deposed by her father’s legal team.

“You don’t sit down a victim for a deposition to be deposed by the victimizer,” Britney’s attorney Mathew Rosengart argued in the courtroom, adding that a deposition would be “re-traumatizing” to the singer.

“Ms. Spears was in a conservatorship for 13 years that was run by her father,” Rosengart told the judge. “Mr. Spears is the individual who has documentation and first hand knowledge…Mr. Spears and the documentation serve as the evidence…Ms. Spears has no knowledge or documents,” Rosengart continued. “She’s not the accuser. She’s not the alleger,” he said. “Ms. Spears is not a plaintiff here. Ms. Spears is not a defendant here.”
