As we mentioned earlier this year, Britney Spears' former "manager", Osama Lutfi, is suing Brit Brit's parents for defamation!
Cuz, you know, his good character got ruined by those two.
However, a Los Angeles Superior Court Judge decided yesterday that the lawsuit will not go to trial until next year.
Guess he didn't find it that important to start the trial right away!
The case has now been scheduled for March 8th, 2010
As for BritBrit's parents, they're fighting back. An attorney for Lynne Spears is reportedly seeking to dismiss the defamation claim against her since they say it impedes her free-speech rights.
Jamie Spears, attorneys for him are considering a countersuit.
Attorneys on both sides, however, have already told the judge they're willing to have the case resolved with a private mediator.
Thankfully, the restraining order on Lutfi to stay away from Britney is still in place until 2012.
