    A judge granted Casey Kasem's daughter, Kerri Kasem, daily visits with her father in a court hearing today.

    Jean Kasem, the 82-year-old radio legend's wife, was ordered to appear in court to hear the judge's latest rulings regarding the ongoing case.

    Kerri and her stepmother are involved in a dispute as to whether the former "Top 40" host is receiving adequate medical care.

    Kerri was actually appointed her father's temporary caretaker during a hearing earlier this month, however, Casey is reportedly still staying with his wife at family friends' home in Washington.

    A judge also ruled that a doctor will dictate Casey's medical care and that Kerri's doctor will also be allowed to evaluate her father.

    Kerri was granted visits with her father for an hour a day, and she can bring an investigator or off-duty officer along should she feel the need to protect herself.

    Casey's wife was given legal power to make medical decisions for him in 2011, saying then she had no desire to obtain conservatorship of her husband, who suffers from Lewy body disease, a form of dementia, unless a court ruled he needed protection. His daughter Kerri was denied conservatorship of her father in November 2013, with a judge saying he was getting "good to excellent care" at home with Jean.

    Kerri became temporary caretaker of her father after filing a missing persons report to locate her father and an attorney for her stepmother admitted to having "no idea" where his client's husband was.
