Scott E. Rahn, Managing Partner of RMO LLP, was recently quoted on Refinery29.com regarding the Britney Spears conservatorship, “Jamie Spears Insists Britney Spears Can End Her Own Conservatorship — Is He Right?”
Here’s an excerpt:
Scott Rahn, the Southern California-based founder and managing partner of RMO, and an attorney who specializes in conservatorships, broke down the legal obstacles involved in the case on a recent phone call with Refinery29. “What [Thoreen and Jamie] are saying are that court processes have procedures, and the procedure that she needs to follow if she wishes to terminate the conservatorship is as he described, which is to file through her court-appointed counsel if that’s what she really wants to do,” Rahn says. “I haven’t seen or heard anything from the filings or reported from the filings to suggest that she’s filed what would be required to terminate the conservatorship.”
As stated in Framing Britney Spears, a recent documentary about Britney’s career and conservatorship, and backed by Rahn, it is extremely rare to see a conservatorship petition approved. “Having been in the probate courts for the last several decades, in the cases that we do see, it’s frankly extremely uncommon to have a conservatorship terminated.” He says that’s because the vast majority of conservatorship cases involve someone who is permanently mentally or physically compromised and is never going to improve. The singer’s case is unique in that, as far as we know, she doesn’t seem to be in that bucket.
