LOS ANGELES, May 30 (UPI) -- The Los Angeles court commissioner presiding over Britney Spears's conservatorship said the singer is still incapable of participating in legal proceedings.

People.com reported that L.A. Superior Court Commissioner Reva Goetz held a private, 90-minute talk with the attorneys involved in the case, then told the courtroom Spears remains unable to participate "in any meaningful way" in legal proceedings.

Goetz said that for now, the pop music star won't be able to take part in the "litigation process or in discovery proceedings."

Spears's doctor has made a "differential diagnosis" and "wants to do additional testing in the not-too-distant future -- something we will need to address in June," Goetz added.

No members of the Spears family attended the hearing, People.com said.

The singer's father, Jamie, and attorney Andrew Wallet have been handling her affairs since Spears was hospitalized for psychiatric treatment twice several months ago.
