Father-conservator Jamie Spears has engaged in “significant verbal attacks” against Britney, according to the latest round of claims by Jon Eardley, an attorney who says he now represents troubled singer.

Eardley filed a motion late Friday in U.S. District Court’s Los Angeles Division in an effort to convince a judge to make a federal case out of what he says are violation of the pop star’s rights. The motion alleges:

• Britney has been “denied her fundamental rights to associate freely and and to utilize telephones and other methods of communication with the outside world.” (Others have offered arguments the to contrary.)

• “The conservatorship has taken away significant liberties from [Britney]. She has been in a form of private confinement for a month.”
