Mickey Rooney's battle against alleged elder abuse continued Monday morning, following a hearing in conservatorship proceedings for the 91-year-old actor who has accused his stepson of maltreatment and meddling in his financial assets.
An official at the Stanley Mosk Courthouse (map) of the Los Angeles Superior Court, where Rooney's hearing was scheduled to take place, said she could not provide any details about the case.
Monday's hearing was another piece in Rooney's ongoing allegations that he had been emotionally, verbally and financially abused by his stepson, Christopher Aber, 52, and Aber's wife, Christina, 42.
Christopher and Christina Aber deprived Rooney of food and medications, and prohibited him from leaving his house, Rooney said.
"Over the course of time, my daily life became... unbearable," Rooney said in his March 2011 testimony to Congress. "I felt trapped, scared, used, frustrated and overall, when a man feels helpless, it's terrible."
