A Los Angeles judge granted Jay Leno's request for conservatorship of his wife, Mavis Leno's estate. The judge found Jay Leno suitable and qualified for the role, citing Mavis Leno's inability to manage her finances independently due to dementia. The conservatorship was deemed necessary and the least restrictive option for her protection.

Jay Leno filed for the conservatorship in January to execute an estate plan on his wife's behalf, as he believes she would do if she were capable. The couple, married for over 43 years, have not commented on the matter.
