Jamie Spears: ‘I had legal right to punch Sam Lutfi out’

Sam Lutfi is currently suing Jamie Spears and claiming Britney’s dad assaulted him. Except Jamie’s not taking this lying down and basically told the court he had the legal right to kick the shit out of Sam, according to TMZ:

In legal papers filed today, Jamie is very careful to not admit he punched Lutfi in the chest at Brit’s house last year — as Lutfi suggested in a recent lawsuit. However, Jamie says the law allows him to open a can of whoop ass if the situation calls for it — and according to the docs, the Lutfi situation called for it.
Jamie claims “he was provoked” by Lutfi and was “privileged to use force in and about the matter complained.”
He adds, “Any necessary force may be used to protect from wrongful injury the person or property of oneself, or a wife, husband, child, parent or other relative or member of one’s family.”

I can’t even believe this is an ongoing court battle. I pretty much assumed Jamie’s lawyers would simply point at Sam Lutfi and say “Hey, remember when we kept seeing Britney Spears’ vagina? It was that guy’s fault.” BAM! Case closed. Who wants sandwiches?
