SpearsEarlier this week, a judge ruled that Britney Spears won’t be forced to sit for a deposition to provide testimony about the allegations of misconduct during her conservatorship that she has lodged against her father.

The pop star’s attorney argued it would retraumatize her and is unlikely to produce any discoverable information. According to Ms. Spears, her father monitored all communications on her phone and asked her security team to place audio recorders in her bedroom. Jamie Spears has denied all allegations. Earlier this month Mr. Spears was ordered to sit for a deposition on August 12 regarding these allegations.
