On Wednesday, a court commissioner ruled to keep Jamie Spears on as conservator over the personal and business affars of his daughter, Britney Spears, through July 31.

TMZ is reporting the order is effectively a seal of approval for Poppa Spears, who has been co-conservator since Brit’s latest breakdown.

Sources also say the conservators are open to ending the conservatorship earlier than July 31, if Britney’s mental state sufficiently improves and stabilizes.

Under the conservatorship, Britney appears to be recovering significantly. She teaches regular dance classes to children at Millennium Dance Complex, has abandoned her wild and erratic night life and has won back  visitation rights with her sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James.

Today’s news is probably not going over well with Britney’s former confidante, Sam Lutfi, who, after being served with a restraining order two weeks ago by the conservators, has vowed publically to "fight to the end" to overturn the order and regain his friendship with the pop singer.

With all of the positive energy surrounding Britney right now, it’s hard not to think that Sam’s absence might be a good thing after all.

And, by the looks of things, the court seems to agree.
