Even though Britney won't have to appear in court, her mother Lynne Spears has been ordered by a judge to testify in the libel and defamation lawsuit that Sam Lufti filed against Britney and her parents.
To refresh your memory, Britney's former manager, Lufti, is suing the Spears family for defamation, libel, and slander after Lynne wrote the book Through the Storm, which discussed his role in Britney's life before her public meltdown in 2008.
Like we said, due to her conservatorship, the judge has shot down Lufti's requests to get Britney to appear in court.
Her mother, however, has been ordered to be deposed on December 13, 2011.
We're hoping Lufti doesn't has any shot of winning the case, considering how shady he acted at the time when Britney was at her lowest point.
Besides, at least there's light at the end of tunnel for Lynne. It sounds like Britney could be getting engaged very, very soon…
