Britney’s supposedly appointed a new lawyer — and he claims that her civil rights have been violated.
Jon Eardley said: “These are issues of confinement. Very serious confinement. Not allowed to contact her friends. Not allowed to use the phone. Not allowed to come and go as you please. Bodyguards controlling you and so forth.”
However, legal experts say that Eardley’s legal grandstanding has no ground. In fact, the Superior Court has found that Spears “lacks the capacity” to choose her own counsel.
That’s one reason her former lawyer has dropped from the case.
