2008 – The conditions of Britney Spears’ child-custody case will stay the same after an emergency hearing took place Wednesday (January 23). In yet another strange development on the part of the singer, she made it to the courthouse — but somehow not the courtroom — for the hearing, which she had called.
“There is no change in the custody order that was in force since January 4, under which Miss Spears had no access,” Los Angeles Superior Court public-information director Allan Parachini told reporters outside the courthouse. “Mr. Federline, his lawyer [Mark Vincent Kaplan and Spears’ lawyer Anne] Kiley was present. Miss Spears was not.”
