Ingham had been appointed to represent Britney in the ongoing legal saga against her father, Jamie, who has held control of her finances and medical decisions since 2008.

Britney Spears’ court-appointed attorney Sam Ingham has resigned after failing to file the paperwork required to end the conservatorship held over her by her father.
In order for a judge to rid Britney of the conservatorship, a request for it to be terminated must be filed.
Ingham never filed such a request and for weeks, he has ignored questions from the world’s media and Britney’s fans as to why.
It’s now unclear who will represent the star.
On Tuesday, Britney’s long-time manager also resigned, saying he no longer needed to be kept on the payroll because she wants to retire.
He wrote a letter to the court to say while he hadn’t spoken to her for two years, he’d learned that she had been expressing a desire to other people to stop working.
