Judge throws out entire Sam Lufti case in favour of Britney Spears and her family!
We haven’t been covering this legal trial on popledge, mainly because we felt it was in the past and have our own opinions about Britney Spears’ former manager Sam Lufti.
Following a three-year legal battle the court battle between Lufti and Britney’s family finished abruptly today. The judge chucked out all of Lufti’s claims saying that he hadn’t proven any of his case after six days of court time. This means Lufti’s entire lawsuit is now worthless, although he does have the right to appeal the verdict.
Lutfi, 38, sued Britney for unpaid fees, her dad Jamie Spears for allegedly punching him, and mum Lynne Spears for purportedly defaming him in her 2008 book.
“I really thought long and hard about this,” Superior Court Judge Suzanne Bruguera said before dismissing the case. “It’s the right thing to do.”
Jamie’s attorney Leon Gladstone said following the hearing, “We’re delighted, we feel it’s the right result.”
Jamie Spears, who hugged his legal team, declined to comment.
Lutfi appeared emotionless, then said, “I’m going to appeal” after leaving the courtroom.
We hope Britney can continue her road to recovery now this is out of the way
