Judge orders guardian for octuplets' finances

A California judge has appointed a guardian to oversee the estate of Nadya Suleman's octuplets. A judge in Orange County granted a petition Monday filed on behalf of a former child actor who is an advocate for kids in entertainment.

Paul Petersen said he wanted a guardian to ensure labor laws are followed and money the babies earn is kept safe.

Suleman's attorney said previously the family hired an entertainment lawyer and established a trust for the children.

A reality show is slated to start filming Suleman and her 14 children, all under age 8, on Sept. 1.

The world's longest-surviving octuplets, six boys and two girls, were born Jan. 26.
