Britney Spears will get no help from LA's family court in dodging the paparazzi, People reports. The commissioner overseeing her custody case today declined her lawyers' request for a gag order. Spears' legal team had requested a media blackout because the hordes of photographers were "dangerous" to the troubled singer "physically and emotionally."
The commissioner agreed that the threat was real but agreed with ex-husband Kevin Federline's lawyers that the pro-gag order arguments "don't pass Constitutional muster." "That's a law enforcement issue and an issue for the kind gentlemen and ladies of the press to deal with appropriately," he said of the camera-wielding throngs.
