Default Re: Teen Sues Parents for Cash, College Tuition. Does She Have a Case?

perhaps her friends "generous" lawyer father could have offered to pay her high school tuition and hoped that they would eventually work it out, rather than throw some gas on the fire.
Didn't you get the memo MoP? Children are only self sufficient at 26 now.

Seriously though, screw her lawsuit. I remember being pissy with my parents too over rules, chores, boyfriends, whatnot. You're 18 now though, nobody owes you anything.
Look at these eyebrows. These are attack eyebrows! They could take off bottle caps!
