OK! has learned that the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services will not pursue any possible child-endangerment charges against pop queen Britney Spears.
In open-court discussion with L.A. County Superior Court Commissioner Scott M. Gordon, Britney’s attorney, Laura Wasser, said, "I spoke several times last week" with the county child-welfare counselor assigned to Britney’s case. "It does not appear the county will pursue further action at this time," says Wasser, who appeared with fellow attorney Dennis Wasser, her father.
Kevin Federline‘s attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, abruptly cut off Wasser before she could speak another word in open court, asking the commissioner for a closed-court hearing. The commissioner promptly agreed and ordered spectators to leave. The hearing began at 9:02 a.m. and ended at 9:05 a.m.
UPDATE: "It went very well," Britney’s attorney, Laura Wasser, told OK! as she left the closed-courtroom hearing later in the day.
Commissioner Gordon set the next "order to show cause" hearing for Sept. 19.
