Who's heard about this one over the last couple of days?

Another spoiled brat who has that entitlement mentality.

A New Jersey family court judge ruled today that Rachel Canning’s parents do not have to pay her high school tuition after she sued them to cover her schooling and living costs.

The judge delayed a ruling on whether the parents must pay the 18-year-old student’s college tuition while asking lawyers to consider whether it’s wise to “establish precedent where parents live in fear of establishing rules of the house?"

The judge also denied her request for attorney fees, although ruling that the parents should continue with weekly allowance and "child support" payments to their daughter.

The next hearing is scheduled for April 22.

The New Jersey family was in court today with the teenage daughter facing off against her parents in a battle to get them to pay for her schooling and living costs even though she's 18.

Rachel Canning, who stared straight ahead for most of the hearing, is suing her parents in family court in Morristown, N.J., because she says they refuse to pay for her Catholic high school education and for college in the fall.

She claims that her parents, Sean and Elizabeth Canning, kicked her out of their Lincoln Park house when she turned 18 in October, which they deny. Dad Sean Canning says she left voluntarily because she didn't want to follow their house rules concerning curfew and chores.

"Private school, new car, college education; that all comes with living under our roof," he told ABC News station WABC-TV.

His lawyer, reading from a statement before the start of this afternoon's hearing, said the Cannings "are distraught that their oldest daughter feels that litigation is a better option than living together as a family."

"To be clear, my clients never abandoned nor abused their child and they have asked her to come home," Laurie Rush-Masuret said.

I heard about this a few days ago. She appears to be a spoiled brat who is used to getting her way every time she throws a tantrum.

I hope the judge throws this case out and slaps her and her lawyer with a fine.
