Washington (ANI): Singer Britney Spears will be returning to court next month to revisit her ongoing illegal driving case. The trial, which was originally scheduled to begin in January, has been shifted to October following a Los Angeles Superior Court judge"s ruling in favour of the star's conservatorship attorneys, who charged she was incapable of issuing a deposition at the time - due to much-publicised health issues.
Judge T.K. Herman issued the renewed trial date on September 18, calling on the 'Toxic" hitmaker to reappear in court on 15 October, reports Contactmusic. The hearing relates to an incident in August last year, when Spears scraped a parked car in a private parking lot in California's San Fernando Valley while driving without a valid licence.
The charge, which was a hit-and-run, was caught on camera and was dismissed in court in October (07) after Spears offered a personal apology and 1,000 dollars in compensation to the other vehicle''s owner, Kim Robard-Rifkin. However, the troubled star is still facing a charge of driving without a valid California driving licence, because, at the time of the incident, she was only in possession of a permit from her native Louisiana.
