Not surprisingly, the lawyers representing Dark Knight Rises gunman James Holmes announced in court Thursday that they believe James to be mentally ill, and need more time to assess his condition before entering a plea.

Most likely, Holmes' representatives WILL plea insanity.

Holmes is being charged with 24 counts of murder and 116 counts of attempted murder, after 'allegedly' opening fire on movie patrons at an Aurora, CO movie theater killing 12 and wounding dozens.

Brit Brit's Legal Woes Continue! Fragrance Licensing Company Demands Judge To Order Her To Be Deposed!

Filed under: Britney SpearsLegal Matters

Maybe they'll have better luck than Sam Lufti did!

The legal mess between Britney Spears and Brad Sense, the licensing company that claims that the pop star breached her contract with them by refusing to pay them the 35% commission for her Elizabeth Arden fragrance range, just got worse!

Brad Sense wanted Miz Spears to sit down for a deposition, but her team has once again claimed that she is not able to mentally competant to do so under her conservatorship, to which the former is calling bullshit!

According to legal documents:

"Brand Sense intends to seek immediate relief from the probate court's order. The notion that Britney Spears is mentally or emotionally unfit to testify under oath is a sham. Ms. Spears currently has the mental, emotional and physical capacity to endure the strain of a months-long international concert tour, make numerous public appearances, engage in interviews with the media, participate in numerous promotional campaigns for her various business enterprises, and maintain custody of her children."

Eek! They argue a good point!

But we don't want to see our Brit Brit have to go through the strain of this kind of thing!

A hearing has been set for July 11th that will determine if she will, in fact, be ordered to be deposed, so here's hoping that they can reach some sort of agreement before that to fix this whole mess, and save everyone the head ache of a court battle!

Is Britney Spears 'Mentally Incapable' Of Getting Married?!

britney-spears-mentally-incapable-of-getting-married-according-to-conservatorship

This all seems so unfair!

We think everyone can agree that Britney Spears has essentially turned her life around since her 2008 psychiatric meltdown, which resulted in her father Jamie Spears taking conservatorship of her assets, finances, and decisions. However, this apparently means that in the law's eyes, she's mentally incapable of not only testifying in Sam Lufti's lawsuit, but also getting married to beau Jason Trawick if she wanted to!

The pop star recently revealed in an interview that she would happily marry Jason if "the time was right," but according to California attorney David E. Wohl:

"For a legal marriage to take place in California, a person must have the ability to make legally binding decisions. Just signing the marriage license requires this. Because Britney is under a conservatorship for all intents and purposes she cannot get married. The conservatorship would have to be set aside before she can legally tie the knot."

Seriously, this seems like such a technicality!

We personally don't think it would do any good for her to have to go and face Lufti after everything he put her through, but we're sure that if she did want to get married, her family and her team would be more than happy to make the proper arrangements to let her legally do that!

She's come so far, and seems to be doing so well, we would hate for something like this to hinder that in any way!

Keep up the good work, gurl! We're so proud of you!

Model's Laywer Angling For Psychiatric Defense In Castration Murder

Filed under: Legal MattersModels

Of course he is.

Renato Seabra, the model accused of killing and castrating journalist Carlos Castro, may be mentally unstable to stand trial — or at least that's what his lawyer is hoping.

On Friday, Seabra's lawyer David Touger asked the judge for more time to review his client's hospital records to make sure he can stand trial.

Touger also wants Renato's statements he gave to cops to be thrown out because they had no "probable cause" to arrest him. As we mentioned before, those statements include the model's admission to murdering and castrating Castro.

Until the records are reviewed, the 21 year old will remain in the psychiatric hospital jail ward.

Brooke Mueller's Mom Says Charlie's Kids Are Fine

Filed under: Charlie Sheen

charlies kids are fine

Earlier this week, when Charlie's kids were taken away from him, he got frantic and publicly announced that he had no idea where they were.

We assumed everything was fine with the children, and now, Brooke Mueller's mother Moira Fiore is saying that they're doing well:

"Both of them are great, didn't you see them? They're precious."

Exactly what we expected. We really had no doubt that they were fine.

For the 900th time, if Charlie wants to see them, he needs to get help.

He's clearly mentally ill, and he needs to seek treatment before looking into the possibility of getting any kind of custody again.
