Brand Sense Partners is suing Britney Spears for $10 million. They claim she cut them out of a lucrative deal with Elizabeth Arden, despite an agreement to the contrary.
Lawyers for Brand Sense want to take Britney’s deposition. Her lawyers have refused, on the legal grounds that she is currently under a conservatorship which because of issues with her competency. They argue that she cannot be compelled to testify under oath without the okay of the conservatorship’s attorneys and/or the court.
The conservatorship attorneys have apparently not signed off and now Brand Sense is going to court to seek a court order to require Britney to give her depo. (Her dad is still legally her conservator, giving him authority and guardianship over her finances – subject to oversight by the court and attorneys, because of her mental health issues several years ago.)
