Judge: Daughter Can Stop Food For Casey Kasem

As a kid growing up in radio my hero’s were my father (he owned the station) Don Imus (he was the radical) and Casey Kasem. I listened to him because he was so good. Now the end appears close for the icon broadcaster and there appears to be a battle to keep him alive. “Casey Kasem‘s daughter has the authority to withhold food and fluids from her ailing father, a judge ruled Wednesday.Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Daniel S. Murphy reversed a ruling from Monday that stated that Kasem should receive food, fluids and certain medications until after a court-appointed attorney met with the former radio host and his doctors.” Though Kasem’s fate appears to be in the hands of the courts there are those that oppose the ruling. “Kasem’s wife of 34 years pleaded with the judge to restore food and fluids to her husband, who has a form of dementia. Jean Kasem stormed out of the courtroom after Murphy issued his ruling, according to the New York Daily News, which first reported the decision.Jean Kasem and her stepdaughter Kerri have been fighting in court since May over Casey Kasem’s care. Murphy has given Kerri Kasem temporary authority to make medical decisions for her father.Murphy upheld Kerri Kasem’s authority and ruled that Jean Kasem had not acted in her husband’s best interests when she removed him from a California medical facility and took him to a friend’s home in Washington state last month, Martin said.”http://tv.msn.com/tv/article.aspx?news=872633
