The court upheld it’s suspension of Britney Spears visitation rights today. Another hearing is scheduled for February 19. The judge heard testimony from several witnesses including first responders to Britney’s house during her standoff. The media was initially allowed into the hearing, but the judge barred them before any testimony could be given, according to the Associated Press:
Court spokesman Allan Parachini said those who testified were two Los Angeles police officers; Paula Strong, the court-appointed monitor who was present for the visit at Spears’ home; Lisa Hacker, a parenting coach who has been working with Spears and Federline; and Lonnie Jones, the bodyguard who went to the home to get the children.
Britney Spears, who legally was not required to attend, did show up briefly at the courthouse then quickly left. Mark Vincent Kaplan addressed the media shortly after the hearing but refused to answer questions:
“The word victory is not something Mr. Federline or his counsel would ascribe to this. There is no joy. This is a grave situation for all,” Kaplan said.
Although Federline thought the ruling was correct, Kaplan said, “his goal, his hope for the future is at some point he will be able to parent the children with the participation of their mother.”
What an incredibly huge load of shit. If Kevin Federline has any future plans for Britney seeing the kids, it involves her locked in a cage in his garage. Actually, I’m not even supposed to say anything, but he’s already faxed the judge some estimates on a cage. I hear the judge is thinking it over, but he’s mainly afraid to make “the most logical and awesome ruling in the history of law.”
