Court denies appeal by Gibson's ex

A California appeals court has rejected a bid by Mel Gibson's ex-girlfriend to remove his attorneys from a child custody case

A California appeals court has rejected a bid by Mel Gibson's ex-girlfriend to remove his attorneys from a contentious child custody case because she consulted with one of their law partners.

Court records show the 2nd District Court of Appeal in Los Angeles rejected an appeal by Oksana Grigorieva last week without hearing oral arguments.

The Russian musician had been trying to disqualify the actor-director's attorneys because she consulted with their firm in 2008 on a custody issue related to her son with actor Timothy Dalton.

The court refused to overturn a May ruling by a family law judge that Ms Grigorieva waited too long to cite a potential conflict of interest. The former couple have been fighting over custody of their infant daughter for more than a year.
