jmr61: I've been an ACLU member and supporter for a long time and have watched them represent Nazis and a lot of other scumbags. Assuring that scumbags get representation is a pillar of our legal system and I've never been bothered when they represent these types.

That said, filing an amicus brief in support of a crazy woman who has hundreds of millions of dollars bugs the crap out of me ACLU.

Let's go fight voter suppression.


I see this as a huge fight on the behalf of the rights of the mentally ill that's been a long time coming, and I applaud them for it.

Apparently, according to fairly recent court documents... her net worth is around $60m, or a little over what she makes in a year.  Somebody's milking that cash cow to the point of dehydration, and if the victim is mentally ill and being taken advantage of I'd say she's just as deserving of help.

Suggesting that the mentally ill might be less deserving of trustworthy legal counsel than Nazis sounds like something a Nazi would say.

The lawyer for the conservatorshop has made 6 million off her estate so far.  Someone in an earlier thread said that she made 140 million from her residence in Vegas.  Sounds definitely like the cash cow is being starved.

That's just her court appointed lawyer.
The lawyers arguing to keep her under conservatorship are also pulling half a million a year apiece.

Lot more hands are in the cookie jar than just Daddy Dearest.

They can do more than one thing, and an amicus brief requires pretty minimal resources.

Let's face it: the ACLU can use the publicity to draw attention to less, um, sexy causes.

She's supposed to be in court today as part of her effort to get a new attorney. If the judge slaps her down, then it's safe to say the judge is being paid by the conservatorship scam.

Working in all the social service based jobs I have- do you realize how hard it is to conserve someone? Let alone with all the weird stuff in her arrangement?

I've seen petitions for elderly demented people homeless on the street literally eating garbage not get conserved. "We can't take away their rights....Murica"

How bad off is Britney to merit all this. She is still employed, raising kids, and posting selfies like all of us.

This is what lawyers and money do when you combine them with abusers.

I hope this is finally critical mass enough of not directly materially involved parties, to sway to Judge to bust this scam...

That was total earned over a four year period, and I'm not so sure it was quite that high.
She deserves to make her case.

Probably wouldn't be a bad idea to look at the judge's campaign donations anyway.
