Reiser says that the doctor’s finding “of her lack of capacity to give consent for medical care” means that the 27-year-old’s mother will have legal control over her well being and finances. That gives Lynn control of Bynes’ estimated $3 million savings, where she lives and her basic needs. Doctors will be in control of Bynes’ treatment while she’s hospitalized, though.
Bynes’ court-appointed attorney May Shea says her client does “oppose and object [to the conservatorship]. She doesn’t feel there’s a need.” Bynes has been hospitalized for a total of 17 days. She didn’t attend the hearing.
Lynn’s conservatorship will remain in place until Sept. 30. Hopefully Bynes shows signs of improvement by that point in time.
