A child actors’ advocacy group trying to have a guardian appointed to oversee the financial interests of octuplet mother Nadya Suleman was dealt another legal setback Friday when a state appeals court denied its request.
Suleman’s attorney Jeff Czech confirmed his client won her appeal to overturn a lower court’s ruling granting the appointment of a financial guardian.
“For now let me quote the court: This is an unprecedented, meritless effort by a stranger to a family to seek appointment of a guardian of the estates of the minor children,” Czech said.
Gloria Allred, who represents former child actor Paul Petersen, president of a Minor Consideration, which is seeking to become the financial guardian of Suleman’s 14 children, could not be immediately reached for comment.
Petersen’s organization wants to oversee the financial interests of the children because he believes Suleman has a conflict of interest regarding her contract with Eyeworks UK Group Ltd. that allows the octuplets and their six older siblings to be featured on a reality show.
