More news on the conservatorship ruling ...

The conservatorship is in effect only until February 4th, at which time there will be another hearing to decide if any change should be made.

"It is in the best interests of the conservatee to have conservatorship over her person," Commissioner Reva Goetz said during the hearing.

The conservator can "restrict visitors" and hire security for Spears. Goetz said the conservatorship will give Jamie and his attorney access to Britney's medical records. Brit's dad will also be able to "take all actions to secure all liquid assets including credit cards."

Goetz called this action "necessary and appropriate."
