With all the buzz surrounding Britney Spears' other legal issues seem to have fallen by the wayside. But on Friday a lawyer for the embattled pop star appeared on another one of Spears' cases — driving without a valid license.

According to the A.P., Spears' attorney, Michael Flanagan and prosecutor Michael Amerian appeared before a judge and said they had been unable to agree on what the law applies. They asked for more time and were given until Feb. 20.

Superior Court Judge T.K. Herman said if the two parties could not agree after that, the case would go to trial.

The case stems from an August incident in which Britney was videotaped bumping a car with her Mercedes as she was trying to park. She left the scene after checking out the damage to her own fender.

The owner of the other car later filed a police report and Britney was charged in September with both a midemeanor hit-and-run, and driving without a valid license. The hit-and-run charges were dismissed in October after Britney paid an undisclosed sum to the owner.

At the time of the accident, Britney was driving with a valid Louisiana state license but did not have a California state license. According to the law, a person who is ''domiciled'' in California is required to get a California license. Britney did so within a week after the charges were filed.

''There's no dispute about the facts here,'' Flanagan said Friday. ''The dispute is about what the law is that's appropriate to the facts.''
