Spears case drives state’s bid to limit conservato­rships


SACRAMENTO » Disability rights activists and advocates for Britney Spears backed a California proposal Wednesday to provide more protection­s for those under court-ordered conservato­rships, while promoting less-restrictiv­e alternativ­es.

Their move came as the volatile Spears case again boiled over in a Los Angeles County courtroom.

The hearing to settle lingering issues in the aftermath of Spears’ conservato­rship, which was terminated in November, quickly descended into a series of angry accusation­s between attorneys for Spears and her father, and the case appears headed for a long trial to determine the truth of allegation­s of misconduct against him.
