    ---------------------Judge Rules Casey Kasem Is Receiving 'Good To Excellent Care' At Home---------------------

    The three oldest children of CASEY KASEM were dealt a temporary setback in OCTOBER (NET NEWS 10/16) over their legal battle to have a conservator appointed to handle the ailing radio icon's affairs, with a judge declining to intervene in KASEM's care. Now, EONLINE.COM reports KASEM's daughter JULIE was again denied in her bid "for a temporary conservatorship to oversee her ailing father's medical affairs, with L.A. Superior Court JUDGE LESLEY GREEN saying in court that the 'clear and convincing evidence we have now is that he is receiving, depending on who you talk to, good to excellent care' at his home."

    The judge made that ruling after JULIE KASEM and her husband alleged that her father "has been isolated from his daughters, friends and other family by Mrs. KASEM."

    KASEM's current wife JEAN is fighting the children, and filed her own court documents yesterday, "her attorney charging that her husband's three adult children from his first marriage had 'single-handedly and irreparably shattered the lives of their father, his wife and youngest daughter [LIBERTY], the calm of their home and their neighborhood by engaging in uncalled-for public demonstrations and personal attacks in the media. They are doing so with a professionally orchestrated media and legal campaign that has disgraced their father and vilified their stepmother'."

    MARSHALL GROSSMAN, the lawyer who represents JEAN KASEM, told reporters that his client was "very gratified" by the judge's ruling.

    God Bless Casey. However, when he dies, the hits will "just keep on coming". I mean this in true respect.

    -----------------Jean Kasem And Stepchildren Reportedly Reach Accord On Visiting Casey Kasem----------------

    CASEY KASEM's wife JEAN has reportedly settled a conservatorship dispute with one of the ailing radio star's children. JEAN had been involved in a court battle with her adult stepchildren KERRI, JULIE and MIKE for months, amid allegations she had banned them from visiting their dad, who is suffering from advanced Parkinson's disease.

    JULIE had filed in a LOS ANGELES court (NET NEWS 10/13), asking to be appointed her father's conservator, which would put her in charge of his medical needs, but JEAN countered, insisting she should be the one making all the decisions. The judge refused to grant JULIE conservatorship (NET NEWS 10/16).

    Now, HOLLYWOOD.COM reports, "on FRIDAY (12/20), it was announced that the two parties have since reached a mutual agreement over the care of the 81-year-old patriarch, although details have not been divulged. It was also revealed that KASEM is currently in hospital, although further details about his condition or treatment were not shared."
