BRENDA Penny is the judge presiding over Britney Spears’ conservatorship case.

The judge denied the pop star’s request to remove her father Jamie Spears from her conservatorship back in June 2021.

Who is Judge Brenda Penny?

Judge Brenda Penny is overseeing Britney Spears’ controversial conservatorship case in a Los Angeles court.

She was appointed to the bench in 2018 by former Governor Jerry Brown. 

Her current term ends on January 4, 2027.

Penny is a graduate of the University of Southern California and the University of West Los Angeles School of Law.

She began her legal career in 1982 as an associate at the law firm Gronemeier & Barker and became a partner seven years later.

Penny practiced law solo in 1994 and three years later became a probate attorney for the Los Angeles County Superior Court, according to a biography of Trellis, a legal database.

She was elected by the superior court judges to serve as court commissioner in 2014. 

Penny served as commissioner for four years, until she was appointed to the bench.

The judge won re-election by default in March 2020 as she was the only candidate due to the cancellation of the primary and general elections.

What did Judge Brenda Penny tell Britney Spears?

Penny acknowledged Spears’ testimony to the court on the day of her conservatorship hearing on June 23, 2021.

The judge said: “Ms. Spears, you're quite welcome. 

"And also, I just want to tell you that I certainly am sensitive to everything that you said and how you're feeling and I know that it took a lot of courage for you to say everything you have to say today. 

Adding: “And I want to let you know that the court does appreciate your coming on the line and sharing how you're feeling."

Penny also explained to Spears back in June that the conservatorship could not be removed until a petition to terminate it is submitted to the court.

Spears claimed she was not aware of the process.

Her lawyers filed the petition in Sept. 2021, three weeks after Britney's father filed to step down.

The conservatorship was officially terminated on Nov. 12, 2021 when Judge Brenda Penny ruled to terminate without any further mental evaluation giving the pop star the control of her life back.
