Britney Spears' Lawyer Wants To Seal Court Papers In Britney,s Custody Battle

Britney Spears' lawyer wants to seal all court papers in her custody battle with ex-husband Kevin Federline over their two children.

Lawyer Laura Wasser filed a motion yesterday asking a Superior Court commissioner to make a conditional July 30 order to seal all documents dealing with custody permanent.

It was filed in response to a motion by a magazine and TV station to unseal some of the papers.

"This is the perfect instance to stop the madness," Wasser said in court.

"No one could have contemplated the plethora of media activity."

Commissioner Scott Gordon heard arguments yesterday but put off ruling on the issue until a scheduled hearing on Monday.

Representing People magazine and KNBC-TV lawyer Alonzo Wickers sought to unseal some documents in the case.

He cited a pair of cases that he said show not all family law documents, even those involving child custody, need be kept entirely private.

"No statute says custody-related documents should be broadly sealed," Wickers said.

Gordon said he would issue a written ruling tomorrow, the day of a hearing on Federline's request to gain a bigger share of custody of the couple's two children, 23-month-old Sean Preston and 11-month-old Jayden James.

Spears, 25, and Federline, 29, have shared joint custody of the two boys since February.

Federline's lawyer Mark Vincent Kaplan has said he will seek additional custody for Federline because the two boys are "isolated from risks" when they are with their father.

Kaplan supported Wasser in seeking to seal the custody documents.

Spears married Federline in October 2004, eight months after her first marriage to childhood friend Jason Alexander was annulled. She cited irreconcilable differences when she filed for divorce from Federline on Nov. 7, 2006.

The couple's divorce became official July 30.
