Amanda Bynes‘ mother Lynn was denied a temporary conservatorship for the troubled actress by a judge at the Ventura County Superior Courthouse in Oxnard Calif. In a closed-to-the-public hearing Friday, RadarOnline.com has learned.
The judge determined that there was no need to grant a temporary conservatorship at this stage because Amanda will remain in the hospital for another two weeks. The judge also wants to speak to Amanda Bynes in person and set another hearing for August 9. Bynes will be required to attend the proceedings.
Bynes also received a court appointed lawyer, and an investigator was assigned to prepare a full report before the next court date.
Bynes’ lawyer has filed docs asking that she be released immediately from the psychiatric hospital that a judge ordered she remain in for the next fourteen days. A hearing will be held at the hospital this afternoon to determine if Bynes will be released.
As we previously reported, Amanda’s father Rick, wasn’t included in the application for a conservatorship. Her mother was represented by famed attorneys Tamar Arminak and Patrick Reide in her attempt to to control her daughter’s personal and financial affairs after the actress was placed under a 5150 hold this week after she started a small fire in the driveway of a Thousand Oaks, Calif. home earlier this week.
“Amanda’s parents are truly afraid their daughter will die if the conservatorship isn’t granted,” a source told RadarOnline.com prior to Friday’s hearing.
