TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

TODAY'S MOST UPDATE: The 18-year old who sued her own parents, asking them to pay for her college education and give her child support, moved back into her family's home. But, Rachel Canning still didn't drop her lawsuit.

On Wednesday, a lawyer for Canning's parents said "I'm not here to comment on what the motivation is for this event. She's just a kid and she's home."

 

Earlier this month a judge ruled Rachel will not get $650 dollars a month in child support, and her parents won't have to pay tuition to her private high school while she finishes her senior year. 

The judge said, "Do we want to establish a precedent where parents live in basic fear of establishing rules of the house?"

However, if Rachel doesn't drop the lawsuit, there's another hearing scheduled for April to determine if Elizabeth and Sean Canning must pay for their daughter's college tuition.

Rachel sued, claiming her parents threw her out of their home and cut off all financial support when she turned eighteen late last year. Her parents say the honor student and cheerleader chose to leave because she didn't want to follow their rules.

Her dad is a former police chief, and at the time of the hearing said "we love our child and miss her. This is terrible. It's killing me and my wife. We have a child we want home. We're not Draconian and now we're getting hauled into court." 

Rachel lived for five months at her best friend's house, and that best friend's parents are paying for her lawyer.
