Judge Rules Casey Kasem’s Daughter Can Starve and Dehydrate Him to Death (2014)

In a case that is beginning to resemble the battle over Terri Schiavo, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Daniel S. Murphy ruled that the daughter of radio announcer Casey Kasum can starve and dehydrate him to death by having his food and fluids removed.

The bitter standoff between the wife of the radio icon and the children from his first marriage over whether he will be fed and hydrated has been played out in court this week.

On Monday, Judge Murphy appointed an attorney who will meet with Kasem and his doctors in Washington state.

Then, today, the judge granted the daughter of Casey Kasem the authority to withhold medication, food and fluids from her ailing father.
