An 18-year-old New Jersey honor student and cheerleader has been tossed from her parents Lincoln Park home, but demands that her mother and father continue to pay her private high school and impending college costs as well as her mounting lawyer fees, according to her lawsuit.
Rachel Canning claims shes been out of her parents home since her 18th birthday, Nov. 1, after her parents vowed to cut her off from all support both financially and emotionally.
But Sean and Elizabeth Canning say their spoiled college-bound daughter doesnt live by their house rules and left the home because she didnt like the law of the land overseen by her father, a former Lincoln Park police chief.
The Morris Catholic High School senior and lacrosse player instead has lived at the Rockaway, N.J., home of a classmate, whose father, John Inglesino, has foot the bill for the suit.
My parents have rationalized their actions by blaming me for not following their rules, Rachel said in her court papers, according to The Daily Record of Morristown, N.J. They stopped paying my high school tuition to punish the school and me and have redirected my college fund, indicating their refusal to afford me an education as a punishment.
Canning filed suit last week and is scheduled to appear with her attorney, Tanya Helfand, at 3 p.m. Tuesday in Morristown Family Court. The teen will demand her parents pay a Morris Catholic tuition bill of $5,306 as well as $12,597 in accrued legal fees.

Oh...the poor baby. Will she spend her life whining because the world does not bow to her every whim. I hope the parents counter-sue this fool.
I wonder if she is on their medical insurance policy? If not, she can sue for that too.
Dad has always said the best thing about me was that I left home at 17 and never came back, LOL! (Unfortunately for him, I’ll be picking out his Nursing Home. Tee-Hee!)
Man, they’ve got their hands full with THIS brat!
Parents should rewrite their will while they are at it...
Scares the crap out of me that this lawsuit was not shot down at the filing clerk’s desk.
She can go down the street and register in a public school.
Rachel may be an ‘honor’ student, but it doesn’t look like she’s learned much.
“Parents should rewrite their will while they are at it..”
I never thought about that but you are so right! Any “daughter” that would take her parents to court DEMANDING her right to private school and college (all while refusing to live by simple guidelines concerning curfew etc) is the type of child that could do the unspeakable. Rewrite the will and immediately inform her that she won’t get a single dime.
If the court doesn’t toss this, then there is no hope for our nation.
Honor roll students with crappy morals are why the county’s in the state it’s in.
Honestly dumb people aren’t capable of creating so much damage.
Looking for free birth control meds too I’ll bet.
She’s currently living at a “friend’s” parents home.The father of the “friend” hired the lawyer for her,etc.I have to wonder how he is benefiting from all this drama.
So she has accrued $12,597 in legal bills and yet this is her first day in court. That's pure BS.
