Nadya Suleman's attorney says it's not clear if any action will be taken against the mother of 14.
Jeff Czech says the 4-year-old likely got the black eye from a fall and suggested one of Suleman's 2-year-old twins may have caused the bite marks.
Czech tells The Associated Press the boy "jumps at noises and bumps furniture and walls."
Police have said they've made several visits to Suleman's home in the past year to respond to complaints about lost, trapped or poorly cared for children.
