Family Gets the OK to Pull the Plug on Casey Kasem

Casey Kasem's daughter has been granted the right to pull the plug on her ailing father.

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 Kasem initially implemented the end-of life measures on June 6.
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 on Wednesday.
The New York Daily News 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.

Why doen't his wife get the authority? This makes no sense, the children usually don't get to make those kind of decisions unless there's no spouse. Hmmmm....

^^^^ @ 5:56 - The wife is the one that snatch him from the hospital and drove him all over the U.S. where he ended up in a hospice in Washington dying. That bitch is evil and nasty and was trying to kill Casey, thats why the judge granted the daughter conservator of his healthcare but it was too late - Casey was in critical condition suffering and not expected to live thats why the end of life care!!
