Amanda Bynes` mother granted conservatorship
Los Angeles: Troubled star Amanda Bynes has been placed under the temporary conservatorship of her mother, Lynn Bynes until September 30.
Lynn and Rick Bynes launched a bid to gain control over their 27-year-old daughter`s personal and financial affairs after she was placed under an involuntary psychiatric hold last month for attempting to light a fire in a stranger`s driveway and a judge agreed.
Judge Glen M Reiser said the conservatorship gives Lynn the `right to control placement and right to determine medical care. Provisionally does not have ability to contract other than minor conservatory matters. Essentially you`re the boss`.
Tamar Arminack, the lawyer for Amanda`s parents, said, "My clients are just interested in getting their daughter well."
Amanda`s lawyer told the court during the hearing, which the actress did not attend, that she did not believe the conservatorship was necessary.
Another court date has been set for September 30 to reassess Amanda`s care.
