Recently, Spears' long time court-appointed counsel filed a petition to resign from his position. This is when Spears took the opportunity to ask the court if she could hire her own attorney. The above report says that Spears now has a federal prosecutor by the name of Mathew Rosengart working as her representative.

More reports on Twitter say that this new appointment by Spears gives her a stronger chance at reaching her goal of being removed from the conservatorship. See those reports below.

As Spears' battle continues, fans have to feel good about her ability to speak out in court for what she wants. The pop-star is in what seems to be the best position yet as far as her conservatorship battle is concerned.
