Britney Spears posted a celebratory video Wednesday after a judge ruled she is allowed to choose her own lawyer in her conservatorship case.

Spears also used the #FreeBritney hashtag, which has been used for years by the Free Britney movement, which seeks to see the pop star be released from her 13-year-long conservatorship.

The judge's ruling came just over a week after Spears' court-appointed lawyer, Samuel D. Ingham, III, filed to resign. Spears has selected Mathew S. Rosengart, a well-known Hollywood lawyer, to represent her.

Speaking in a Los Angeles court Wednesday, Spears also asked that her father, Jamie Spears, be removed from the conservatorship and charged with conservatorship abuse.

The latest hearing came weeks after Spears gave explosive testimony last month during which she called the conservatorship abusive and asked for it to end.

Following her testimony, Judge Brenda J. Penny ruled on July 1 to deny Spears' request to remove her father from the conservatorship.
