Ep. 209: Guardianship Abuse Goes Way Beyond Britney
Listen now
Description
Britney Spears’ battle against a guardianship that she says is unwarranted and abusive is a high-profile case, but it is far from the only one questioning the legal mechanism that can strip people of their rights to basic self-determination. On this week’s episode we talk with Law360 features reporter Cara Bayles about just what’s going on with the guardianship system. Also this week: Joe Exotic, the eccentric Oklahoma zookeeper at the center of Netflix’s hit documentary ‘Tiger King,’ wins an appeal following his criminal trial; actor Justin Theroux notches a victory in a long-running and dramatic property dispute with his attorney neighbor; and a Wisconsin state judge gets dinged for brandishing a firearm during a court proceeding.
