Falk conservator report issued

February 21, 2009|Associated Press

A court-appointed attorney who has met with Peter Falk has issued a report stating that he believes the actor does not need to be placed under a conservatorship.

In a report filed Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court, Clark R. Byam wrote that he sees no need for Falk's daughter to be placed in control of the 81-year-old actor's estate.

His conclusion is based on meetings with Falk, his wife, his business manager and others.

The actor's daughter, Catherine Falk, petitioned to take over her father's affairs in December, claiming that he has Alzheimer's disease.

A hearing on whether to establish a conservatorship is scheduled for Monday.

Byam's report notes that a probate investigator's report came to a different conclusion, recommending that a conservatorship be established.
