OXNARD (CBSLA.com) — A judge Friday granted the mother of actress Amanda Bynes temporary conservatorship over decisions involving her daughter’s health and finances.
Ventura County Superior Court Judge Glen M. Reiser said he arrived at his decision after talking with an investigator who had questioned the 27-year-old Bynes along with reviewing a doctor’s evaluation.READ MORE: Federal Court Strikes Down Judge’s Order To Provide Housing To All Skid Row Homeless

Just three weeks ago, the actress allegedly started a small fire in the driveway of a Thousand Oaks home. That fire was the latest in a string of incidents allegedly involving the actress both in Los Angeles and New York.
Bynes, who remains in a county psychiatric facility, was not present during the hearing. Her court-appointed attorney said in court that her client opposes the conservatorship.MORE NEWS: Father Memorializes Son, Who Died In 2019 Conception Boat Fire, Along Last 500 Miles Of 2,600 Mile Hike
