Britney Spears BritneySpearsDWL200.jpg LOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - A jury has been seated in Britney's misdemeanor driving without a license trial. Four men and eight women have been chosen as jurors.

The case stems from an incident in the summer of 2007 when Britney side-swiped a parked car. At the time, she had a Louisiana driver's license, but not one issued by California.

This morning Britney's attorney J. Michael Flanagan asked potential jurors what they thought of the pop star. He asked them to rate her on a zero to ten scale with zero being "a train wreck" and ten being "talented." The majority of the jurors selected had a neutral opinion of Spears.

At one point, Flanagan asked a potential juror if she believed Britney had led "an unlawful life?" The juror responded, "Did you mean 'awful' life?"

One juror was dismissed after he described the trial as "a waste of time."

Testimony is expected to begin this afternoon with a representative from the DMV and a photographer who witnessed the incident taking the stand.
