After a Los Angeles Superior Court judge denied Britney Spears’ request to have her father, James 'Jamie' Spears, removed from her conservatorship, supporters of the 'Free Britney' movement are slamming the judge for keeping the pop star under his conservatorship. 

The judge in question is Brenda Penny, who heard Britney's emotional testimony in an open court on June 23rd, where the latter described the conservatorship which has controlled her life for the past 13 years as “abusive.” New court documents that were filed on Wednesday, June 30, show that the judge has denied a months-old request by Spears’ attorney, Samuel Ingham III, to have Britney Spear's father removed as her sole conservator. “The conservator’s request to suspend James P. Spears immediately upon the appointment of Bessemer Trust Company of California as sole conservator of estate is denied without prejudice,” the court documents stated, Variety reported.

However, it should be pointed out that the documents were not in direct response to last week’s hearing. Till Britney files a petition to terminate her conservatorship, the judge cannot make any ruling based on what the pop star said. Penny did, however, sign the papers on June 30 — after the singer’s explosive testimony  Apart from the court's reiteration of its decision to not remove Britney's father as her conservator, the court filings also intended for the judge to approve Bessemer Trust as the co-conservator. The papers also stated that the court found Britney to be “substantially unable to manage his or her financial resources or to resist fraud or undue influence.”

The Variety report went viral on Twitter with a number of people who suport the 'Free Britney' movement speaking out in outrage against the recent court filing. "There needs to be a petition to investigate Judge Brenda Penny to find out what her motivation might be for allowing this to go on for so long when Britney is clearly not severely disabled enough to justify a conservatorship. There are less draconian ways to help someone." 

One more remarked, "Let’s complain about Judge Brenda Penny to the California Commission on Judicial Performance. Britney Spears’ team makes the woman meet fans for $1500/$2500 before the concerts ONLY AFTER the conservatorship began but she can’t handle her own affairs? It’s time. #FreeBritney." Another chimed in, saying, "Judging the account that everyone's faces were stone cold during Britney's passionate testimony, nothing was going to be done as long as Brenda Penny was wrapped around Jamie's finger. This case needs an independent evaluation & judge ASAP. #FreeBritneyNOW."
