As OK! reported last night, lawyers from the firm of Trope & Trope, who represent Britney Spears in her custody battle with ex-husband Kevin Federline, marched into court this morning to ask the court — again — to be removed from the case.
You might remember that Trope did the same thing in January, only to withdraw the motion later.
So it was a familiar scene outside the L.A. courthouse today as Brit’s current legal eagles, along with K-Fed’s attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan, entered to meet with the judge. However, after about 30 minutes of closed-door conferencing, all that could be revealed openly was that the matter had been pushed off until next Tuesday, Feb. 19, at 8:30 a.m.
Insiders tell OK! that the judge doesn’t want Trope ditching the case unless there’s someone there to take up the case in their absence. It’s been widely reported that Britney’s family has been trying to woo her original attorney in the case, Laura Wasser, back. But OK!’s insider says that Wasser is wavering on whether or not to rejoin the case.
Meanwhile, court is in session again tomorrow, when the status of Jamie Spears‘ conservatorship over his daughter will be reviewed. He and a court-appointed co-conservator have had control over Brit’s medical and financial matters since her Jan. 31 court-ordered hospitalization.
