Student who sued parents returns home

Student who sued parents back home

The New Jersey honor student who sued to get her parents to support her after she moved out of their home has reunited with them, and the family is now asking for privacy. Rachel Canning moved back in with her parents after speaking with her mother Tuesday, but without any promises of financial support or other consideration, according to lawyers for the teen and her parents. A state judge Wednesday denied a request from Canning's attorney asking for a court-appointed guardian for the 18-year-old to be paid for by her parents. The denied application for immediate relief also requested that the courtroom be closed for future hearings, the records sealed and all parties prohibited from speaking to the media. Last week, state Superior Court Judge Peter Bogaard denied the teen's request for child support and to have her parents pay her remaining high school tuition. Canning left her parents' house on Oct. 30, two days before she turned 18.

Women can't get divorce in alabama

A judge ruled Wednesday that two women who were legally married in Iowa can't divorce in Alabama, which doesn't recognize same-sex marriages. Circuit Judge Karen Hall of Huntsville issue a two-sentence order throwing out the uncontested divorce of Shrie Michelle Richmond and Kirsten Allysse Richmond. Shrie Richmond filed the complaint this month saying the two were legally married in Dubuque, Iowa, in 2012. The suit said the two women, who are separated, no longer get along and want a divorce. The other woman didn't fight the divorce. But the judge's decision said the case was being dismissed because laws in Alabama, which still prohibit same-sex unions, do not apply in such cases. The Iowa Supreme Court overturned that state's ban on gay marriages in 2009.
