We don't know what's more surprising: that Britney's lawyers thought that telling the judge he couldn't understand her difficulty in having early-morning drugs tests because he's not a popstar, or that they got away with it:
Gordon said he does not believe Spears should be treated different from other people who get calls from labs in the morning.
"I have to get here at 7:30 a.m. to read papers," Gordon said in reference to documents filed in connection with today's hearing.
Kiley said Gordon's situation is different.
"But you're not a pop star with a number one album," Kiley said.
Rather than saying "no, and nor am I a mother supposedly desperate to do everything she can to remain in contact with her kids", the judge allowed for a slightly more flexible system. He didn't grant the Spears's side demand for six hour warning of drugs tests - presumably to give her time to find her underwear before turning up for the blood sample.
