The big question — and the one that could be make-or-break — is whether the judge orders a mental evaluation as a prelude for deciding whether to 86 the 13-year-old conservatorship. Britney, Rosengart and Jamie Spears have all said they wanted the conservatorship terminated without such an evaluation.
There have been 2 dozen medical professionals who have weighed in over the years in closed court, presenting their diagnoses. If the judge orders an evaluation, this could turn into a war of the doctors, and the judge will have to decide who’s more credible.
The judge has already said Britney was capable of hiring her own lawyer, and that’s a clear sign she’s competent to run her own life. What’s more, now that she’s engaged to Sam and Britney’s personal conservator, Jodi Montgomery, has agreed to stay on and work for Britney post-conservatorship, the judge may feel she now has a good safety neet.
