A new hearing to discuss Britney Spears’ conservatorship happened today with the annual accounting of the singer’s finances and the motion to seal request in focus.

An accounting hearing regarding Britney Spears’ conservatorship happened today (07) via LACourtConnect.

Judge Penny allowed extra time for Sam Ingham and Britney Spears to file their objections regarding the accounting and Jamie’s motion to seal.

Sam Ingham (Britney’s lawyer) asked for more time to analyze the annual accounting of the singer’s finances after coming to realize it runs for over 200 pages.

What’s does “motion to seal” mean?

If you’re not familiar with juridic terms, a motion to seal is a formal request that is submitted to the court to prevent evidence and transcripts related to a specific court case from being available to the general public – what Jamie Spears’ team have requested and Britney’s team is fighting against.

Today’s hearing was important for Britney Spears’ side. After Jamie’s lawyers argued that without a sworn statement from Britney, Ingham’s report of what Britney said should be considered hearsay, Sam fought back and claimed this was a larger issue that needed to be resolved by the court:

I suspect my client would be more than happy to file a declaration as to a lot of things that, probably, Mr. Spears wouldn’t want to see, but it is my view that she lacks the capacity to do that, and therefore it is my advice to her that she can’t file a declaration, he stated.

Therefore, Ingham asked for Jamie’s side to file a briefing that would clear this up for the 10 November hearing as he feels that this issue is raised every time he speaks on Britney’s behalf.

Judge Penny appeared to agree and ordered a briefing from Jamie’s side in the coming weeks.

The next hearing is scheduled for 10 November.
