A Los Angeles Superior Court judge on Tuesday ordered Jean Kasem to allow a court-appointed doctor to see her husband and also told her to give Kerri Kasem access to her father, the Associated Press reported. Jean Kasem’s lawyers were told to find out and, unless ethically bound, share the patriarch’s current address with the rest of the family.

While two attorneys from different firms showed up on Jean Kasem’s behalf Tuesday, Judge Daniel S. Murphy said, “I’m not sure she’s even complying with my order” from last week. Part of that order sought an assessment of Casey Kasem’s health.

The judge also gave Kerri Kasem permission to hire unarmed private investigators to look into the situation, if necessary, and to head north to see her dad. Also, his passport was to be surrendered.
