    A California appeals court has rejected a bid by Britney Spears' mother to have a defamation claim by the singer's former manager Sam Lutfi thrown out, reports The Associate Press.

    Let me break it down for you: the Second District Court of Appeal in Los Angeles refused to rule that Spears' former confidante, Sam Lutfi, had such a tarnished reputation that he could not sue for defamation. Basically, even though Lutfi was considered a scumbag, that doesn't mean Ma Spears could write negatively about him and not face legal ramifications because of it.

    The back story: Lutfi sued Spears and her mother, Lynne Spears, for libel and defamation in February 2009. The case cited numerous passages from Lynne Spears' book, Through the Storm, in which she accused Lutfi of drugging and controlling her daughter.

    Did you read Through the Storm? Do you think Ma Spears had a case?
