Britney Spears wins another legal victory against her father
Los Angeles, California - Britney Spears has won another victory in court amid the ongoing legal battle with her father, Jamie Spears.
Judge Brenda Penny on Wednesday granted the singer's request not to face questioning by her father and his lawyers.
Britney Spears' legal counsel, Mathew Rosengart, argued during the hearing that such questioning could be traumatizing for the singer, according to TMZ.
Judge Penny ruled earlier this month that Jamie Spears (70) must testify under oath in the dispute with his daughter. He must also disclose documents and answer questions by mid-August.
Rosengart wants to have allegations investigated that Jamie Spears enriched himself off his daughter's multi-million-dollar fortune and even bugged the singer's bedroom.
Rosengart said after Wednesday's court hearing that a management company involved in the case would have to produce all documents relating to possible surveillance at the judge's behest.
Britney Spears is regaining control after her conservatorship
The judge's decision is the latest win in the singer's journey to reclaiming control of her own life. Spears was freed from a controversial conservatorship arrangement, which allowed her father to dictate her life and finances for nearly 14 years, in November.
Last month, Spears (40) married her longtime boyfriend, fitness trainer and model Sam Asghari (28).
