Ugh, Britney. So much for starting 2008 off on the right foot . Today's another mess of stories and legal trouble. According to TMZ, Britney's deposition was scheduled to take place today, but for the fifth time she was a no show . This, combined with what I can only imagine is the biggest headache ever working for Brit, led her team of lawyers to file a petition to quit the case. The firm, Trope and Trope, had this to say,  "There has been a breakdown in communications between [Britney] and Trope and Trope making further representation of her interests impossible." These guys were only able to stand a few short months working for the pop tart after her last legal team bailed in September .
Where was Britney this whole time? Well, she apparently checked into the Parker Hotel in Palm Springs  with her photog buddy Adnan Ghalib at about 2 AM last night only to check out at 7 AM. I hate to expect the worst, but it sounds like Brit may be headed for even more disaster.
