Britney Spears' very-public conservatorship dispute taught us all a lot about how guardianship and conservatorship work. Unfortunately, the news reports mostly taught us how news reports can confuse issues.
We all needed a definition of terms. "Conservatorship" in California (where Ms. Spears' case played out) is different from the same term in Arizona. Guardianship and conservatorship terminology varies a lot by state, as it turns out. And (no surprise here) California happens to be a bit of an outlier.
Join us for our podcast discussion of guardianship and conservatorship terminology, and how Britney Spears' case might have developed differently under Arizona law. And note that, after a one-month hiatus, we're back!
