A judge has yet to decide whether Casey Kasem’s widow, Jean Kasem, has the legal standing to object to the payment of attorney’s fees and other legal costs amounting to about $350,000 dollars in relation to a conservatorship battle over her late husband’s estate, according to an online report published in mynewsLA.com on December 15.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Clifford Klein allotted a court date of January 8 to decide on Jean Kasem’s objection to legal costs.  Among those seeking to be paid are Casey Kasem’s court-appointed legal counsel, Samuel Ingham, and the attorneys of his daughter Kerri Kasem, who was appointed as his temporary guardian when he was still alive.

Meanwhile, the trial date for Casey Kasem’s estate has not been set.  The estate of the late radio icon has been the subject of fierce legal battle between his widow and his children from his first wife, Kerri, Julie, and Mike.
