Angelo Sarno, attorney for the parents of Rachel Canning, the New Jersey student who sued her parents to support her, talks to the press about Canning's return to her home, Wednesday, March 12, 2014, in Roseland, N.J. Sarno said the 18-year-old's return is not contingent on any financial or other considerations. A judge last week denied the teen's request for child support and to have her parents pay her remaining high school tuition. But the judge scheduled an April court date to consider the over-arching question of whether the Cannings are obligated to financially support their adult daughter. Canning had left her parents' house on Oct. 30, two days before she turned 18 after a tumultuous stretch during which her parents separated and reconciled and the teen began getting into uncharacteristic trouble at school.
