On Wednesday, Britney Spears' conservatorship was addressed in court, but a report indicates that the hearing might not have been as productive as members of the Free Britney movement may have hoped.

During the appearance, which addressed the "Toxic" singer's finances, medical care, and psychological outlook, a variety of people involved in the pop star's ongoing case made appearances to discuss what the future could hold for her conservatorship. Britney's parents, Jamie and Lynne, were among those present during the court date.

However, the musician herself did not appear. As seen in the Tweet below, one of the fans who protested the hearing outside of the Stanley Mosk Courthouse in Los Angeles stated that Britney had been unable to call in and speak about her case due to "technical difficulties."

As for what took place during Wednesday's hearing, the court issued a new ruling in Jamie's favor, who has served as Britney's longtime conservator and was appearing as the "defense." Following a motion that he had filed on March 12, which asked that his daughter's case be blocked from public view, the new decision stated that "the motion to seal the transcript, conditionally seal the Status Report filed pending a further motion, and the motion to clear and close the courtroom" had been granted.

Furthermore, a document obtained by The Blast also stated that Jamie had been "ordered to prepare the Order After Hearing."

Leading up to the new discussion about Britney's conservatorship, which has been in place since 2008, various reports have revealed additional information about the case, including the fact that Britney cannot make a specific life choice for herself.

Additionally, Lynne had also made it known that she wants to have more visibility surrounding financial decisions being made for her daughter, including the opportunity to access information pertaining to "bank accounts, vehicles, savings accounts" and more that are currently being managed by a trust. 

Looking ahead, Britney is expected to return to court on August 19 for a follow-up appearance.
