Sue your Parents? Why not!

Posted 3/7/2014

Check out the story on CNN.com.

So apparently, if you feel like you are entitled to do as you please when you turn 18, you are also entitled to file a lawsuit for all those nifty things (like private schooling and a college education) that parents do for good, obedient children?  If you are old enough to claim you are emancipated, you are certainly old enough to support yourself!

Now, I understand there are some other twists in this story, including some that should disturb the lawyers out there.  For example, would you allow a fifteen year old girl to drink vodka in your home and then represent her in this lawsuit?  But this begs the question - do you think the judge in this case was right to deny the initial relief requested?  Do you support the teenager?
