No money -- yet -- for 18-year-old suing parents

  • Judge says no to tuition, living expenses

A high school cheerleader who's suing her own parents won't get any money for now.

A judge denied Rachel Canning's request for her private school tuition and living expenses.

The 18-year-old honor student says her parents abused her and kicked her out of the house. But investigators cleared them of abuse allegations and the parents say Rachel ran away because she didn't want to follow their rules.

The judge says he doesn't think there's a real emergency here. Rachel is living with a friend right now.

Her parents, who were seen crying in court yesterday, say they want her to come home.

Rachel also wants Mom and Dad to commit to pay for college, there will be another hearing to discuss that next month.
