Petition to end guardianship battle over Paul Walker’s daughter rejected
A petition by Paul Walker’s mother to abandon her guardianship bid over the actor’s daughter was thwarted by a judge, an online report stated.
Last March, Cheryl Walker filed documents seeking guardianship over the actor’s 15-year-old daughter, claiming that mother Rebecca Soteros would be a harmful guardian due to her struggle with alcoholism. However, an out-of-court settlement between Walker and Soteros last month led the grandmother to drop her guardianship claim.
The attempt to cancel the guardianship case was rejected by Commissioner David Cowan, who said it is the court’s discretion whether or not the case will be dropped. Cowan has ordered an investigation regarding the guardianship, the results of which will be discussed in a hearing on Wednesday, May 28. An attorney has been assigned by Cowan to represent Paul Walker’s daughter in the case.
