MORRISTOWN, N.J. - A judge has denied a request from a northern New Jersey honor student to force her parents to immediately provide her financial support.

Judge Peter Bogaard Tuesday scheduled a hearing for next month in the lawsuit filed by 18-year-old Rachel Canning to decide whether her parents will be required to pay her college tuition.

Canning claims her parents threw her out of their Lincoln Park home when she turned 18.

Canning's father, retired Lincoln Park police Chief Sean Canning, tells The Daily Record of Parsippany that his daughter voluntarily left home in October because she didn't want to abide by reasonable household rules.

She's been living in Rockaway Township with the family of her best friend. The newspaper reports that the friend's father is funding the lawsuit.
