Lawyer on Christie’s SCHOOL FUNDING task force is bankrolling teen suing parents for college cash
The Daily Caller ^ | 3-5-2014 | Eric Owens

Full Title - "Lawyer on Chris Christie’s SCHOOL FUNDING task force is bankrolling teen suing parents for college cash"

The prominent New Jersey attorney who is funding the legal costs of 18-year-old Morris Catholic High School senior Rachel Canning in her lawsuit against her own parents serves on Gov. Chris Christie’s School Funding Task Force.

The attorney is John P. Inglesino, the managing partner at Inglesino, Wyciskala & Taylor, LLC, a 10-attorney firm in Parsippany, N.J.

Gov. Christie’s School Funding Task Force exists to eradicate abuse and fraud from New Jersey’s education system, explains the Common Sense Institute of New Jersey. Its goals are to study the use of free and reduced school lunches as a way of determining “at-risk” students and, generally, to pinpoint parts of the state’s school-funding formula that are subject to fraud.

Christie created the task force in March 2012 with an executive order.

Canning, a cheerleader and a lacrosse player, moved out of her home in the fall and is currently staying with the Inglesino family.

The 18-year-old adult seeks a declaration from a judge preventing her emancipation into the real world under the theory that she must remain a nonemancipated dependent. She wants her parents, Sean and Elizabeth Canning, to pay an outstanding $5,306 Morris Catholic High tuition bill. The grown woman also wants her parents to pay for living and transportation expenses for the foreseeable future.

The Cannings say their daughter left their house on her own accord.

“I’m dumbfounded,” father and retired police chief Sean Canning told CBS New York. ”So is my wife. So are my other daughters.”

Inglesino was the mayor of Rockaway Township from 1996 to 2002. Now in private practice, he specializes in government law and real estate law. He is the township attorney for Parsippany-Troy Hills, and he represents other Garden State government entities in various capacities.

He brags that Politicker NJ named him among the Top 100 “powerful people” in New Jersey in 2013.

Nothing in his lengthy biography suggests that he has any expertise in education. The word “education” is, in fact, completely absent.

There are two mentions of the word “school” in the 580-word bio. One boasts that Gov. Christie named Inglesino to the School Funding Task Force. The other notes that he attended Seton Hall University School of Law.

Inglesino also once had something to do with litigation involving the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey.

Thus far, an attorney (not Inglesino) who is representing Rachel Canning has racked up bills of about $13,000, according to the Daily Record.

The lawsuit is not going well, however.

On Tuesday, reports CBS New York, a judge ruled that Canning’s parents do not have to pay their grown daughter anything—at least for now.

District court Judge Peter Bogaard denied the 18-year-old senior’s request for emergency cash for high school tuition, living expenses, college tuition and legal fees.

Bogaard asked the litigants before him if it is a good idea to “establish precedent where parents live in fear of establishing rules of the house,” notes CBS.

The judge also read in open court an ugly voicemail Canning left for her mother, according to the Daily Mail. “I wanna s- all over your face,” the high school senior’s message to mom said in part.

“Have you ever in your experience seen such gross disrespect for a parent?” Bogaard asked. “I don’t see it in my house.”

At one point, the judge urged the parties to find a halfway amicable solution outside of court during the long hearing.

The next hearing in the case is scheduled for April 22.

Man....if the Democrats could force parents to pay tuition. That would be a real shakedown. The Massahs at the universities must be licking their chops over this one.

The feds have forced parents to pay for medical insurance.

What is the diff.

They force us to pay for others and others children, pay for their medical, education, food, housing

Why can’t the force you to pay for your own with the pittance you have left.

“POS Parents”?

I don’t think so.

More likely “long-suffering” parents.

Why are the parents POS for trying to force a child (now an adult) to live by their rules?

The real villian in this story is the slimy lawer that is egging her on. There has to be a counter suit the parents can slap him with.

This little tart was in our morning fishwrap. She’s asking her parents to pay living expenses of $650 per week. I gross over $60K annually and don’t even take home $650 per week after deductions which are mostly all the greedy levels of government taking their bite. And, BTW, I’m supporting a wife as well.

In a lot of ways their daughter is what they made her to be. I don't think there are any victims in this one. The family is broken, and the kid should go her way while the parents go their's. If all she wants her parents for is money then there isn't anything repairable in the relationship.

In other words -- Inglesino.

One has to ask what his deal is in all of this???

Surely he's not that hard up for money or is he???

or is this a pissing contest between him and her parents???

“This whole thing is just destroying our family,” Sean Canning told The Post. “We love our daughter. She’s our pride and joy. The door is wide open. We want her to come home.”

Canning told the newspaper he and his wife have disagreed on typical family issues.

“I’m a liberal, liberal parent,” he said. “I wish I could have grown up in my house. I was tougher on my cops at work than I’ve ever been at my home, that’s for sure.”

She didn’t get that way overnight.

I doubt it. Chris Christie awarded him a $52 million no-bid contract a couple of years ago; Inglesino had been an aide to Christie and worked as a fund-raiser for him.

a lot of ways their daughter is what they made her to be. I don't think there are any victims in this one.

not necessarily... my parents raised seven children... of the seven, there was one rebellious child... they did not raise her to be that way... but she chose to be that way... they had a hard time with her for 2-3 years during her teen years... drinking, cutting school, getting into fights... being brought home in a police car... my parents never covered for her... they let her experience the consequences... which is what i think these parents were doing--letting their daughter experience the consequences of moving out on her own... until this law suit!

fortunately, by the time my sister finished high school, she straightened out... she went to college, got married, raised her son who went to private school, college, and is now a State Trooper... my sister and her husband have been married since 1975... they are both productive members of society...

my niece, who is my age, had a similar experience with her daughter... her teen-aged daughter met an older guy, wanted to be with him all the time, got into big fights with her parents over it... she moved out... my niece was heart-broken... it was awful! (she never experienced any of this with her other three children)... but eventually her daughter realized the guy was no good as her parents had warned... came back... things worked out... that was several years ago... even if things seem broken now, it does not mean there is no hope... that there is nothing to salvage...

Man....if the Democrats could force parents to pay tuition. That would be a real shakedown.

All they'd have to do is call it a tax and the USSC would happily uphold it as Constitutional.

...in a related story, Miss Canning is also suing her parents to pay for her new sports car, as well as her home entertainment center, breast implants, and nose job.

Exactly, that was the reference in the story “involved with the litigation involving the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey”.

Christie handed out those monitoring contracts to his lawyer friends $52 million to have some paralegals observe the school and write some reports to make sure there was no more corruption. Isn't that ironic, that there is no over- sight over the US Attorney's office from handing out these contracts or the over-charging lawyers.

Now that he's a fat cat living off our tax money - him and his wife are taking limo rides into New York City and plying teens with wine coolers.

The $52 million no bid contract is only one of the multi-million no bid contracts Inglesino received.

Inglesino is no stranger to the shady side of New Jersey politics. Four years ago, he was accused of pension-padding through a part-time job as a political consultant for an elected official to whom Inglesino made political contributions.
