No Conservatorship for Falk

A judge refused to establish a conservatorship for Peter Falk, but has scheduled testimony to decide whether court intervention is necessary to allow visits between the ailing actor and his daughter.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Aviva K. Bobb scheduled an evidentiary hearing on May 27 to try to determine how close the "Columbo" star was to his adopted daughter, Catherine, before falling ill.

For much of the hearing, Bobb seemed inclined to rule against Catherine Falk and allow the actor's wife of more than 32 years to continue to manage his care and affairs.

This is wonderful news.

Work out the problem that started the family dispute - don't just bring in a guardian. It's good to see one judge with ethics!

Yes, if only Britney were so lucky.

But, I am happy for Peter Falk and I thank the judge who didn't take the easy (and corrupt) route.

This is a lesson all judges should be watching. Instead of rubberstamping a guardianship in cases of family disputes, take the time to find out what's going on and try to solve it instead of harming the innocent.

Any time a judge refuses to create a guardianship, even without knowing the facts, I have to be believe the judge is honest.
