A day after Fox show, octuplets' mom Nadya Suleman in court over money
Nadya Suleman is scheduled to be back in court today, hoping a judge will throw out an attempt to have an independent guardian review her children's finances.
Last week, an appeals court sided with Suleman in her legal battle with a former child star over whether Suleman's 14 children should have an independent guardian to protect their finances.
The 4th District Court of Appeal stayed a lower-court ruling siding with former Disney Mouseketeer Paul Petersen, who took Suleman to court over the issue. Last month, an Orange County judge agreed to appoint a guardian to examine the finances of the children.
Petersen, who is an advocate for children in the entertainment industry, alleged that video shot of Suleman's children violated a law aimed at protecting child entertainers from overwork. The suit seeks to create an independent trust for the children.
Suleman said there was no need for a guardian. The lower court today will consider whether to drop the case.
