"Octomom" Nadya Suleman wasn't in the courtroom Wednesday for a hearing on the effort by an advocacy group to gain guardianship over her eight children.
An Orange County judge ruled earlier this year that the advocacy group for child actors could move forward with its effort to have a guardian appointed to oversee the financial interests of "Octomom" Nadya Suleman's children.
Celebrity attorney Gloria Allred says that Suleman's children deserve an independent guardian as Suleman puts them under the spotlight of money-making reality television, including a mini- documentary.
At Wednesday's hearing, Suleman's attorney, Arthur LaCilento, argued that plaintiff Paul Petersen, president of "A Minor Consideration" and a cast member of the old TV series "The Donna Reed Show," lacks legal standing in the case.
Allred, who's representing Petersen, cited a California Probate Code which states "a relative or other person on behalf of the minor" may file a petition seeking guardianship.
Suleman had hoped the judge would dismiss efforts to appoint a guardian to oversee the financial interests of her children.
