A judge has extended a restraining order Mickey Rooney obtained against his stepson until April, but said the US actor must appear if he wants continued protection.

The Los Angeles judge ordered Christopher Aber to stay away from the veteran Hollywood actor until a hearing scheduled for April 5.

City News Service reported Superior Court Judge Reva Goetz told Rooney’s attorneys that the 90-year-old actor would have to come to court if he wanted the orders extended for three years.

A conservatorship has been established to protect the Oscar-nominated actor’s money, which he claims have been mismanaged by Mr Aber.

Rooney has also accused his stepson of preventing him from leaving his home and verbally threatening him.

Rooney is scheduled to speak on Wednesday to a US Senate committee that is investigating elder abuse.
