I believe that this information on Edie McClurg's IMDb Biography should not have been publicly disclosed. I am not sure if any legal liability would be or could be tolled but this is a violation of HIPPA rules and regulations. McClurg, if there is any truth to these claims, could not have authorized their publication, and I certainly don't know if anyone who IS legally authorized to make such a decision, but it seems sleazy and improper and IMDb is better than that. 


"(February 1, 2019) Battling dementia. Edie's niece, cousin and friend filed docs requesting a conservatorship to take control of the actress' affairs. In the docs, they say neurological tests revealed she's no longer able to live alone without assistance, and is especially vulnerable to undue influence given her poor judgment and evident dementia. Their immediate concern is with a longtime male friend who's lived with Edie for several years. According to docs, the guy has previously talked about marrying Edie. Edie's family and friends don't think she's capable of understanding the relationship with the guy. They claim he's been verbally abusive and tried to compel her to sign documents to change her estate planning. They're asking the court to appoint one of them - Edie's second cousin, Angelique Cabral - the conservator."

Rob: It appears that this item was copied/plagiarized from TMZ.com:

https://www.tmz.com/2019/02/01/edie-mcclurg-dementia-conservatorship-ferris-buellers-day-off/

The text was copied from that article with some sentences copied word-for-word, and minimal changes. So, in addition to privacy issues,  there is also a copyright problem.
