Casey Kasem judge reverses ruling: Host's feeding, hydration can stop - 2014-06-11
A judge upheld Casey Kasem's health directive to stop the radio legend's nutrition and hydration during an ex parte hearing held Wednesday in Los Angeles.
The move by Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Daniel S. Murphy reverses a decision he'd handed down Monday ordering the continued feeding and hydration of the 82-year-old, at the request of his wife, while he's in hospice care in Washington state. Jean Kasem, married to Casey since 1980, has been feuding with the radio icon's three children by his first wife.
Murphy also decided that Kerri Kasem would remain her father's temporary conservator.
