Today's Most Update: Teenager drops lawsuit against her parents

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -


TODAY'S MOST UPDATE: Teenager drops lawsuit against her parents. 18-year old Rachel Canning went to court on Tuesday and dropped her lawsuit that asked for child support and tuition payments from her parents. 

Neither Rachel nor her parents commented after they left the courtroom, but in a statement a lawyer says that "some level of normalcy has finally returned to the family."

Rachel finally moved home earlier this month, after a judge ruled she wouldn't get $650 dollars a month in child support, and her parents didn'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?"

Rachel sued her parents earlier this year and claimed they 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.

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