Britney Spears’ friend has filed legal papers objecting to the court commissioner dealing with his restraining order in relation to the pop star.

Osama “Sam” Lutfi was not present for a hearing on Monday at which Superior Commissioner Reva Goetz extended a temporary restraining order against him until April 16.

A one-sentence filing said: “Please take notice that Osama ”Sam“ Lutfi will not stipulate to the above-referenced case being heard by Reva Goetz, commissioner presiding, to whom the above-entitled case has been assigned.”

The document was signed and indicated Lutfi was representing himself.

Superior Court spokesman Allan Parachini said last night that although the document was filed on Friday, it did not reach the courtroom in time for Monday’s hearing.
