Three “children” ages 55, 57 and 60 have a 90 year old dad and 87 year old mom. The 60 year old lives with mom and dad and is their caretaker. Mom gives the 60 year old 100 dollars for groceries. The 60 year old buys 90 dollars worth of food and pockets the ten “for her troubles”.
The three “kids” are always fighting and just cant seem to get along. The confict is causing mom and dad to “act out” and get in trouble. The 57 year old “child” files a lawsuit.
The court, after a three week trial, orders a visitation schedule for the three adult kids and mom and dad. And they lived happily ever after.

This wasn’t a reported case, it was just a story I made up based on occasional (but not uncommon) lower court rulings in California by family court judges.
Can you please tell me the case citation? I would love to read the opinion!
