LOS ANGELES (AP) - A judge has appointed Zsa Zsa Gabor's husband as her temporary conservator in an agreement reached with the ailing actress' daughter.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Revaa Goetz appointed Frederic von Anhalt as conservator during a brief hearing Wednesday. The appointment will remain in effect until the next court hearing in January.
Hilton's attorney Kennethh Kossoff says he will be receiving monthly statements on Gabor's finances and spending will be controlled through a special account. He says a settlement agreement also calls for Hilton to be able to visit her weekly.
Hilton sought a conservatorship in March, citing concerns about von Anhalt's care and financial management.
Kossoff says he is cautiously optimistic the arrangement will work.
Von Anhalt smiled as he left the courtroom.
