Judge: Kasem can go home to wife if doctors OK it
June 03, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

PORT ORCHARD, Wash. — Ailing radio personality Casey Kasem can return to the Washington state home where he’s been staying with his wife if doctors approve, a judge said Monday.

The ruling came a day after Kasem, 82, was taken by ambulance to a medical facility after an argument between his wife and one of his daughters.

Kasem can return to the home near Seattle where he and his wife, Jean, have been staying with friends if there’s medical supervision and doctors say it is safe to transport him, Kitsap County Superior Court Judge Jennifer Forbes said Monday.

It was not immediately clear when that decision might be made.

The ruling marked the latest twist in the ongoing dispute between Jean Kasem and her stepdaughter, Kerri Kasem, who has said in legal filings that her father suffers from a form of dementia. They have been contesting who should make decisions about the entertainer’s care.

Authorities responded Sunday to a 911 call at the house and found Jean and Kerri Kasem arguing, said Deputy Scott Wilson, a Kitsap County sheriff’s spokesman.

Danny Deraney, a spokesman for Kerri Kasem, said Jean Kasem tossed a package of ground meat at her stepdaughter.

“If you need to know why I did it — when a person is about to pass away, there are always rabid dogs,” Jean Kasem told reporters in response to a question after Monday’s court session.

A doctor was present when Casey Kasem was removed from the home, the sheriff’s spokesman said. Kerri Kasem accompanied her father when the ambulance took him to receive care, Deraney said. His condition could not be determined.

Kerri Kasem said in court Friday that her father is suffering from bedsores and lung and bladder infections. Forbes ruled then that she could have a doctor of her choosing examine her father.
