Is this for real? It is a sad day when the court system spends time on such an absurd case. From my understanding, this case is about a spoiled girl who didn’t want to follow parents’ rules after being suspended from school, spending an evening out drinking with boyfriend, and other disciplinary issues. The girl decided on her own to leave her home because she didn’t want to listen to her parents. She moved in with a friend. Said friend’s father decided she should sue her parents for her living expenses and the last semester of her private school. She also is suing for college expenses. You can see a bit of her trial below. (I found it inconceivable that our court system even has time to hear this garbage. By the way, the plaintiff’s attorney is an idiot.)
I also was disappointed with the Judge. He seemed a bit wimpy. Even though he ruled against the girl, he left open an opportunity for another hearing to determine if the parents will have to pay college tuition.
Really? Since when is college tuition a requirement whether you can afford it or not??? Crazy. Where is Judge Judy when you need her. She would have done a much better job, IMHO.
