The conservatorship for Britney Spears believes a clerical error took place after their last hearing in court and they want it corrected ASAP.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the conservatorship believes the Minute Order from the May 10, 2019 hearing is missing a key component.
As you'll recall, during the hearing, the court was cleared at the request of Spears and her attorney, Samuel Ingham, because she intended "to discuss issues involving her medical care, her minor children, and trade secrets as to which she has a substantial right of privacy."
The court granted the motion but Spears' conservatorship argues that the Minute Order "contains an inadvertent clerical error in that it does not seal the transcript of the hearing."
They are seeking an order to correct the error to include an order sealing the transcript of the proceeding. Without it, the attorneys argue, Spears' privacy rights are at risk.
The conservatorship wants to see the following line added to the Minute Order: "The Court orders that the Reporter's Transcript of this hearing is sealed following the Court's order granting Mr. Ingham's oral motion to close the courtroom."
After the hearing in question, a status hearing was set for September 18, which Britney Spears does not have to attend. Between now and then, a third-party (who must be approved by attorneys for Britney and Jamie Spears) will conduct an evaluation of Britney and her mental state.
A week later, the judge in Britney's conservatorship has ordered a probate court investigator to take a hard look at the singer's case and wants a court investigator's report filed before the September hearing.
The job of a probate court investigator is to conduct extensive interviews with all the people involved in a conservatorship case, including guardians, conservators, doctors and even law enforcement officials who have had contact with the subject of the conservatorship.
The investigator will also be reviewing medical and financial records, including custody agreements and even contractual obligations ... such as her Las Vegas residency.
The following month, Jamie Spears filed legal docs in which he is asking the Louisiana judge to confirm the long-time California conservatorship in the state.
This type of case is called an interdiction-curatorship; in Louisiana law, "interdiction" means the "removal of the right to care for one’s own person and affairs."
Jamie is the "curator" and Britney is seen as the "interdicted person," per the law.
