Casey Kasem Must be Fed, Judge's Orders

Casey KasemAs I have previously discussed, a judge recently put Casey Kasem’s daughter, Kerri Kasem, in control of decisions on his medical care. Now, a California judge has made another ruling in terms of Kasem’s care. After Kerri implemented end-of-life measures, which stopped Kasem’s doctors from providing nutrition, hydration and medication, the judge ordered that all three must be reinstated.  A court-appointed-attorney was instructed to visit Kasem and his doctors, and report back at a hearing scheduled for Friday.
