Brit's Dad Wins Extension of Conservatorship

Britney Spears' father still has control over most of her life, at least for now.

The L.A. Superior Court decided today that Jamie Spears' conservatorship over her will extend until March 10. In addition, Britney's brother Bryan, 30, has been granted control over her trust.

The hearing comes amid signs that Jamie's new role has helped keep Brit on the right track.

Since her release from the psych ward of UCLA Medical Center two weeks ago, she's kept a relatively low profile, going shopping with mom Lynne and teaching dance classes in Hollywood.

Jamie and attorney Andrew Wallet have been in control of Britney's legal, medical, and financial decisions since Britney checked into the psych ward Feb. 1. They have also been granted the power to handle Britney's taxes and her $40 million estate. A man who claims to be Britney's attorney has filed a federal lawsuit claiming her civil rights have been violated, arguing that she's being kept "a prisoner" in her own home.

In addition, the suit claims that Jamie has been over-medicating Britney and has stripped her of individual rights.
