Judge Shuts Down K-Fed’s Request that Brit be Videotaped in Court

A judge has struck down a request from Kevin Federline’s attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan that Britney Spears’ deposition be videotaped in court.

Britney’s lawyer Thomas Dunlap won his argument that a leak of the potential video could cause “undue embarrassment” for her.

Attorneys for Britney and Kevin met in court this morning ahead of their scheduled 1:30 p.m. hearing. Both Britney and K-Fed are under court order to appear and discuss the progress made in their custody battle.

L.A. Superior Court Commissioner Scott Gordon made his decision despite concern that she’s courting “inordinate amounts of media,” something he says doesn’t match her expressed desire for privacy.

Kaplan is gathering various depositions in order to convince the court why Kevin should be awarded primary physical custody. Among those who have been subpoenaed, according to Brit’s former attorney Laura Wasser, are Alli Sims, her former bodyguard and her former manager Larry Rudolph.

As of now, Kevin has primary physical custody of Sean Preston and Jayden James. Britney has monitored visitation rights and one overnight visit per week.
