Judge rules against NJ teen suing parents for support

MORRIS PLAINS, N.J. - A New Jersey couple does not have to pay for their 18-year-old daughter's college education, a judge ruled Tuesday, CBS New York reports.

Judge Peter Bogaard denied Rachel Canning's request of $650 a week in support, high school tuition back pay, college tuition and legal fees.

But he said he would revisit the issue of college tuition at the end of April, about a month after her financial aid forms are due.

Earlier her lawyer said the parents of the high school honor student should have sought help for their daughter rather than cutting her off financially for misbehaving, the teen's lawyer said in a court hearing Tuesday.
Canning is suing her parents, whom she alleges were abusive. She is seeking tuition money for her final high school semester and college.
