Kasem’s fate now in hands of daughter

– A lawyer says a judge has granted the daughter of Casey Kasem the authority to withhold medication, food and fluids from her ailing father.

In the ruling Wednesday, attorney Troy Martin said, Superior Court Judge Daniel Murphy determined that giving Kasem food and fluids would be harmful and cause more pain for the 82-year-old former radio personality.

His daughter, Kerri, initially implemented the end-of-life measures Friday.

On Monday, Murphy ordered the reinstatement of feeding and other care while a court-appointed attorney consulted with Casey Kasem and doctors.

Martin, an attorney for Kerri Kasem, said that ruling was reversed Wednesday.

The New York Daily News, which first reported the ruling, said Kasem’s wife of 34 years, Jean Kasem, stormed out of court after Murphy’s decision.

She and Kerri Kasem have been involved in a dispute over care.
