According to, Jamie Spears petitioned the judge to give him permission to hire the firm of Boxer and Marella on his daughter's behalf, since Britney is not allowed to hire a lawyer on her own.

The judge granted the request.

Earlier this month, Lutfi filed suit against Spears, her father Jamie, and her mother Lynne claiming defamation, breach of contract and assault.
