Psychiatric Hold Gives Doctors More Power Over Amanda Bynes Than Conservatorship Would Give Mother

Doctors gave mother power to make medical, financial decisions for Bynes instead


Amanda Bynes' mom is dropping her bid to get a permanent conservatorship, but not because she's turning her back on her very ill daughter … it's because she already has the ammo she needs to protect her.

Amanda's mom was slated to go to court Monday to make the temporary conservatorship permanent.  But here's the deal.  Amanda is currently on an LPS hold—translation, doctors have a tighter rein on Amanda than her mother would have with a conservatorship.
