Britney Spears will not have to undergo questioning in a Florida civil case filed by her former manager at least until summer.

Clay Townsend, an attorney who represents Johnny Wright, said the pop singer won't have to be deposed until August, following a closed hearing Monday. Townsend argued that Spears appears competent based on interviews and appearances.

A court commissioner blocked efforts last year to depose Spears in the case, which was filed in Orlando, Fla.

Townsend claims she is the only person who can answer questions about specific periods of her music career. Attorneys for Spears' father, who has control over the singer's personal and financial affairs, declined comment.
