When she issued her ruling in July, Judge Penny mentioned she wished to make certain no “unwarranted burden” was positioned on the famous person singer.

“Whether [Jamie Spears] believes it or not, his daughter feels traumatized by what she went by way of at his arms for greater than a decade,” Rosengart argued on the listening to in late July. “He has informed the world that he loves his daughter. If that’s true, not solely ought to he settle for the court docket’s ruling, he ought to withdraw his movement. It’s what a good man would do.”

Weingarten mentioned throughout the listening to that he was “flabbergasted” by the proposition Jamie is just not entitled to discovery from his daughter or her investigative agency whereas he himself should hand over discovery on his alleged misconduct. The lawyer promised to enchantment as he defended Jamie’s report.

“Mr. Spears is proud, and can stay proud, of what he did for – not to – what he did for his daughter, defending her from svengalis and Rasputins and different unscrupulous individuals who have been searching for to glom on to her fame. He protected her superbly for 13 years,” Weingarten informed the court docket. “He did nothing flawed.”
