Lula, then 84, asked the court in Indio, California, for a temporary restraining order after allegedly being rushed to the hospital due to emotional stress she claimed was brought on by Diane.

“I couldn’t speak and I was shaking because I was scared about what she would do to me if I told the doctors and nurses the truth about the abuse,” Lula alleged.


She further alleged she called elder abuse authorities who informed her she was “being mentally emotionally abused” and that she “needed to remove her daughter from her home 'before something bad happens.'” (She did not offer any proof from officials.)

She alleged her daughter restricted who visited the house, and monitored the phone.
