Britney Spears’ legal battle over her conservatorship has captured the interest of both the public and politicians. The case has also raised a lot of questions about conservatorships and the legal rights of those who live under one.

This week the pop star scored a significant victory when a judge granted her permission to choose her own lawyer.

On the FOX News Rundown, host Jessica Rosenthal spoke to probate and conservatorship attorney Lisa MacCarley about that major development and whether or not Spears would soon have control over own finances and life.

MacCarley, who is an outspoken member of the “#FreeBritney” movement, explained how conservatorships are intended to work and why she feels the law was violated in the case of Britney Spears. She also addressed concerns Spears has been abused by her conservators, but also the singer’s highly-publicized troubled past.

On the FOX News Rundown Extra, you will hear our entire conversation conservatorship attorney Lisa MacCarley and get a better understanding of Britney Spears’ case and why so many have joined the “#FreeBritney” movement.
