LOS ANGELES, Nov. 19 (UPI) -- A judge in Los Angeles Tuesday rejected a request by Casey Kasem's children to name a conservator for their father but ordered a plan to let them to visit him.
Kasem, 81, long associated with the "American Top 40" radio franchise, suffers from Parkinson's disease. His three adult children, all from his first marriage, argued his second wife, Jean, was barring them from seeing their father.
A judge said Jean Kasem was doing a good job taking care of her husband, KTLA-TV reported. But he ordered attorneys for Jean and the Kasem children to work out a visitation plan by Dec. 20. He scheduled another hearing for that day.
An attorney for Jean Kasem said any limits she placed on visits were for her husband's benefit.
"The man is very ill, it's not healthy for him to have people marching in and out of the house," attorney Marshall Grossman said.
Kasem started working for Armed Forces Radio while he was in the service in the early 1950s. He also did many voiceovers for television shows and commercials.
