And now for the latest on Britney Spears' never-ending legal troubles!

Day one of the singer's misdemeanor driving without a license trial ended on Wednesday without a single juror picked. Britney did not appear at court.

Potential jurors differed on several aspects of the case. One man blamed the paparazzi for Spears' troubles while another called the idea of a trial "ridiculous." Only one person was dismissed, a woman who claimed she had some previous contact with Brit's business manager.

This puts a damper on the trial, which was supposed to move forward with opening statements on Thursday.

The charge is the last remnant of a case stemming from an accident last August in which Britney, 26, hit a parked car and left the scene. At the time she did not have a valid California drivers liscence.

Brit's father, Jamie Spears, may be called as a witness in the case, which is expected to last for three days.
