LATEST: Britney Spears' attorney has been granted a further month to work on the singer's driving without a valid license case. Defence lawyer Michael Flanagan and prosecutor Michael Amerian asked Los Angeles Superior Court Judge T.K. Herman for an extension on Friday (25Jan08) - so they can work out on what law applies to Spears' case. Herman set a hearing for 20 February (08), but warned the lawyers that if they haven't come to an agreement by that date, he will order a trial regardless. The hearing relates to an incident in August (07), when Spears scraped a parked car in a private parking lot in California's San Fernando Valley while driving without a valid licence. The hit-and-run charge, which was caught on camera, was dismissed in court in October (07), after Spears offered a personal apology and $1,000 (GBP500) in compensation to the vehicle's owner, Kim Robard-Rifkin. But the troubled star is still facing a charge of driving without a valid California driving licence - because at the time of the incident, she was only in possession of a permit from her native Louisiana Spears has since obtained her Californian driving licence.
