(AP) A court says Britney Spears doesn't have to testify in a deposition in a Florida case involving a former manager.
Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Reva Goetz ruled Tuesday that Spears doesn't have to give the deposition until February, or until she is out from under her father's conservatorship. Jamie Spears has controlled his 26-year-old daughter's personal and financial affairs since February.
Attorneys representing Spears' former manager, Johnny Wright, want the singer to answer questions under oath. Wright and his company sued Spears last October, claiming the singer failed to pay for work he helped produce.
Jamie Spears asked the Los Angeles court to intervene and block the questioning.
Britney Spears remains under the conservatorship until at least the end of this year
