Access Hollywood has learned that attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan, acting on behalf of his attorney Kevin Federline, was granted a hearing this morning before Commissioner Scott Godon.
According to a source, the private hearing was held in chambers in a Los Angeles courtroom. A representative from the office of attorney Sorrel Trope also attended the hearing, on behalf of Britney Spears.This is clearly related to their ongoing custody battle, since these attorneys represent the two sides in this matter.
Rumor is the hearing may be connected to a new set of charges filed on September 21st by the office of Los Angeles City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo. That case grew out of an incident on August 6th in which Spears bumped into a parked car but left the scene of the accident without attempting to notify the owner of the other car.
Within that case is another charge; that Spears is and has been driving without a California driver?s license. The Department of Motor Vehicles later confirmed to Access Hollywood that Spears is not a legally licensed driver in California.
But this past Tuesday (September 25) Spears was clearly seen (and videotaped by numerous papparazzi) while behind the wheel of a car with her two sons Jayden and Sean Preston in the back seat.
There is speculation that Kevin?s attorneys have seen that videotape too, and may want to show it to the Commissioner.
