Judge Declares Britney Spears Unfit To Testify in Court

On Tuesday (Apr. 21) Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Akiva Bobb upheld a ruling that states Britney Spears isn’t mentally fit to make her own legal decisions.

The judge’s declaration was in response to a motion filed by attorney Jon Eardley demanding the singer be available to testify at the hearing to determine weather permanent restraining orders should be granted to the singer against Eardley, her former manager Sam Lutfi and ex-boyfriend Adnan Ghalib.

Eardley, who was purportedly hired by Spears in 2008 to fight a conservatorship case brought on by her father, argued that since Spears was sane enough to headline a major tour, she should be able to take the stand.

In his ruling on the motion Judge Bobb sited a previous judge’s decision, telling the court, “There was a finding of a judge of the Superior Court that she lacks the capacity to testify.”

The restraining order case was adjourned until April 28, when the judge will hear rebuttal arguments.
