Teen who sues parents drops complaint


UPDATED 1:46 p.m.

A high school senior who sued her parents for financial support and college tuition has dropped the lawsuit.

18-year-old Rachel Canning filed lawsuit last month, claiming her parents kicked her out of their home and she was unable to support herself or pay her college tuition.

NEW JERSEY – A high school senior who filed suit against her mother and father for financial support and college tuition has returned to her home in Lincoln Park, New Jersey, the attorneys for her parents said Wednesday.

“Rachel Canning has returned home and reunited with her parents and siblings. Her return home is not contingent on any financial and/or other considerations,” said the statement from the law firm Snyder & Sarno.

The lawsuit has not officially been dropped, but Angelo Sarno, who is representing Rachel’s parents, Sean and Elizabeth, said the family conflict has been resolved.

“The bottom line is it’s over,” Sarno said at a news conference. “It’s ancient history, it’s done. They’ve welcomed her back into the house.”
