L. A. No. 4127.
October 18, 1915.
APPEAL from an order of the Superior Court of Los Angeles County revoking the letters of guardianship of the person and estate of a minor over the age of fourteen years, and, at the request of said minor, appointing the respondents as the guardians respectively of her person and of her estate. James C. Rives, Judge.
The facts are stated in the opinion of the court.
Isidore B. Dockweiler, for Appellant.
George L. Saunders, for Respondents.
The only difference between that case and this is that in that case the guardian removed was not a parent of the minor while in this case the guardian displaced was her father. This relationship, however, is of no consequence, since the statute gives the minor the authority to select a new guardian, and does not make such power dependent upon relationship. The order of the court appointing the nominated guardian constitutes an approval of her selection, and makes the order valid under the statute unless it is made to appear that the court below abused its discretion in such approval. No attempt is made to show this.
The order is affirmed.
Sloss, J., and Lawlor, J., concurred.
