Britney Spears lawyers manage to insult Stalin's victims, judge's intelligence

I suppose the one piece of judgement shown by Britney Spears' lawyers is that they stopped short of reaching for the Nazis and merely suggested that Spears had been treated like a 'gulag victim' by the US courts:

In newly released court papers, Jon Eardley likened her plight to that of forced labourers in Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn's literary masterpiece.

Mr Eardley was voicing his objections to the court-ordered conservatorship that currently governs the pop singer's life.

"It is worth noting that there has not even been a 'show trial' for Miss Spears," Mr Eardley said, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Perhaps, Mr Eardley, but then again, Spears wasn't thrown into the back of a van marked "Meat", driven thousands of miles from her home and family, thrown into a freezing prison cell and made to join work groups despite being fed only the meanest of rations. The courts had stepped in because it appeared that Spears could not be trusted to exercise the most basic degree of judgement - which is a charge that could be leveled at a lawyer who can't tell the difference between one of the most shameful periods of human rights abuses of the last century with having your Dad look after your money while you're not well.
