PORT ORCHARD, Wash. -- A Washington state judge has ordered that a daughter of ailing radio personality Casey Kasem be allowed to visit him.

The ruling Friday was the latest twist in an ongoing dispute between Kasem's wife, Jean, and her stepdaughter, Kerri Kasem over the care of her father.

Kerri Kasem has said in court filings that her father suffers from a form of dementia.

In Kitsap County Superior Court Friday, she said her father was suffering from bedsores along with lung and bladder infections.

Under the ruling, Kerri Kasem will be allowed daily visits for up to an hour and can have her father examined by a doctor.

The 82-year-old Casey Kasem has been staying with family friends west of Seattle.
