Judge orders food, meds to ailing Kasem

– A judge ruled Monday that Casey Kasem should be fed, hydrated and medicated while a court-appointed attorney evaluates the health of the ailing radio personality after his daughter moved to implement end-of-life measures.

Kasem, who has dementia, was in critical condition in a Washington state hospital.

His daughter, Kerri Kasem, who has been placed in temporary control of his treatment, consulted with doctors and decided in recent days to stop giving her father food, water and medications, attorneys said in court.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Daniel Murphy ruled that Casey Kasem should receive the care while an attorney appointed by the judge meets with Kasem and his doctors. Kasem was hospitalized last week with an infected bedsore.

Casey Kasem’s wife of 34 years, Jean Kasem, appeared in court and said she supported Murphy’s ruling and will ask to be restored as her husband’s caretaker.

“Only God knows when to take someone,” she said.
