Britney Spears' parents aren’t taking lightly to what they feel are Sam Lufti’s fabricated claims against the family.
As Lufti’s legal team has concluded their case, Jamie and Lynne Spears’ have moved to have the claims of breach of contract and battery thrown out. The news comes as the latest development in the ongoing trial centering on the pop icon’s downward spiral in 2007.
E! news reports the update, saying that the breach of contract against Britney and the battery claim against Jamie are the only charges the family has asked to have dismissed.
There has been no move regarding the libel claim charge that Lufti has filed against Lynne regarding her scandalous memoir Through the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World, which accused the former manager of drugging Britney, among other things.
According to legal documents in the nonsuit motion, Britney never signed off on the deal to give Lufti 15 percent of her income, nor has the prosecution "presented clear and convincing evidence that Jamie Spears acted either with intent to injure him." – Both claims Lufti makes in his suit.
Lufti accuses Jamie of punching him in the stomach on the morning of January 29, 2008. He remembers it well as it is the same date that Brit was recorded crying outside of her house after jumping out of a car that Lufti was driving.
The accuser has gone on the record saying that the fist-to-stomach encounter caused no injuries...
A hearing deciding whether or not to dismiss these two charges is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. on Thursday.
