Britney loses lawyer

With her high-stakes custody battle looming, Britney Spears is lucky to have some top people fighting her case for her. People like Sorrell Trope, who has been involved in this sort of case for decades, with a surprising degree of success.

Trouble is, she doesn't have Trope any more: After Spears missed another court date, Trope has said "enough" and walked. Trope was the third in a line of divorce attorneys who try to make sense of the Spears case, but then fail.
