The judge also approved Britney’s request to hire former federal prosecutor Mathew Rosengart as her private attorney.
Following the hearing, Matthew told reporters outside the courthouse that he will take a “top-to-bottom look at what’s happened here over the past decade,” per footage shared on social media from KNX 1070 Newsradio. The attorney also made it clear that it was his team’s top priority for the star’s father, Jamie Spears, to be removed from his role in the conservatorship.
Matthew continued, “Can anyone disagree that it is not in the best interest of the conservatee for James Spears to be a co-conservator? Pursuant to Britney Spears’ instructions, we will be moving promptly and aggressively for his removal.”
After the hearing, Britney’s mom, Lynne Spears, shared an inspirational quote to Instagram that read, “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”
