Britney Spears was back in court to fight for her legal freedom after remaining under a 13-year conservatorship that gives her father control over her life and finances. Spears spoke out in court, asserting she wants her father removed as her conservator and charged with conservatorship abuse. In a crucial moment in her quest to end her conservatorship, a judge ruled she can now hire her own lawyer. MSNBC’s Chief Legal Correspondent Ari Melber is joined by civil rights attorney Nancy Erika Smith to discuss the development in the case and how Spears’ battle shines a light on sexism in courts. (This interview is from MSNBC’s “The Beat with Ari Melber, a news show covering politics, law and culture airing nightly at 6pm ET on MSNBC. ).
