Cheerleader Moves Back in With Parents She Sued for College Tuition

Rachel Canning, the 18-year-old high school cheerleader who sued her parents for college tuition, has agreed to move back in with them, her parents' lawyer said Wednesday.

Canning "has returned home and reunited with her parents and siblings. Her return home is not contingent on any financial and/or other considerations," according to Angelo Sarno, attorney for the Canning parents.

The litigious high schooler had been living with her best friend, the daughter of wealthy New Jersey attorney and minor political figure John Inglesino. Inglesino reportedly encouraged Rachel to sue, and even advanced her legal fees.

The dispute between the teen and her parents centered around whether she was kicked out of the family home or left on her own accord because she didn't want to follow the rules. Sean and Elizabeth Canning say their daughter was drinking and hanging out with an unsavory boyfriend, and also refused to respect a curfew.

They also claimed in a court filing that the Inglesino family has given Rachel access to alcohol since she was 15, and on one occasion, she got so drunk on vodka at their house that she vomited on the sidewalk before basketball practice.

Last week a judge refused to award Canning $650 a week in child support, the balance of the tuition at her private high school, and attorney's fees.

Update: The case is officially still pending, Sarno said at a press conference Wednesday afternoon.
