EXCLUSIVE DOCUMENTS: Britney's Witness List

As we previously reported Lutfi is suing the ‘X Factor’ judge and her parents for defamation and breach of contract. Lufti took particular umbrage to Lynne Spears' portrayal of him in her book, Through The Storm, that discussed Lutfi's role in Britney's life leading up to her very public meltdown, which resulted in Jamie gaining conservatorship of his daughter in 2008.

Other witnesses expected to testify include Britney's ex-assistant, Ali Sims, former manager Lou Taylor, who has worked with the singer over the years, and a slew of lawyers including Laura Wasser, who represented Britney in divorce proceedings against Kevin Federline.

However, one person that won't be testifying is Britney herself.

According to documents, obtained exclusively by, the defense's opening statement will be: "This case was filed by Plaintiff Sam Lutfi against Defendants Lynne Irene Spears, James Parnell Spears, and their daughter Britney Jean Spears in February 2009. In 2008, the Los Angeles Superior Court ordered that a conservatorship be established for Britney. The conservatorship continues to the present; thus, she is under the supervision and control of the court. As a conservatee, Britney is not allowed by law to defend herself. The court has directed her to be defended by her two Co-Conservators, Andrew Wallet and Mr. Spears."
