The Associated Press reports that a judge won't allow Britney Spears medical information to be released to a company that is suing the star and requested access to those files as part of their case building efforts.
Here is the back story: Brit remains under the court-ordered conservatorship of her father after her strange and erratic behavior (all of which was documented by the paparazzi) in 2008. Her father Jamie and her attorneys control her personal and financial affairs.
Because of the conservatorship, she will not be required to give a deposition in the lawsuit from the company, called Brand Sense, which claims it helped negotiate a perfume deal for Spears but was subsequently cut out of the profits stemming from that very deal.
Brand Sense wanted to see medical records proving Spears couldn't testify. But Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Reva Goetz rule that Brand Sense does not have the right to see those medical records. Score one for Brit Brit.
