Following the resignation of Sam Ingham, Britney Spears' longtime court-appointed attorney, Lynne Spears filed a petition asking to hire private counsel for her daughter, citing Britney's different status from when the conservatorship was established in 2008.

The court document obtained by PEOPLE read, "This Motion to Appoint Private Counsel is of the utmost importance and may very well impact each and every of the other requests submitted by Conservatee in her live testimony at the June 23 Hearing.

"It is self-evident that before the Court addresses, for example, the termination of the conservatorship, Conservatee must be allowed to consult with counsel of her choosing."



In her filing, Lynne described Britney's court appearance and speech as "very courageous." She also mentioned Britney's ability to choreograph, perform, and make hundreds of millions of dollars as an international superstar.

According to the filing, "Her capacity is certainly different today than it was in 2008, and Conservatee should no longer be held to the 2008 standard, whereby she was found to 'not have the capacity to retain counsel.'"

Lynne wrote that Britney would need independent legal counsel since Britney verbally requested to terminate the conservatorship.
