Tally, more often than not is wrong. Internet searches can easily disprove most of what he posts.
With his child like responses, I highly doubt he was ever a judge, unless perhaps it was a judge of a cricket chirping contest.
Since 18 in every state is considered an adult, this girl doesn't have a leg to stand on. But judges and juries can, and do, screw it up anyway.
where is your rebuttal , post it

INFO:

prevails, legal experts said.

“In my 20 years of practicing family law in New Jersey, I’ve never seen anything like this,” said Brian Schwartz, chairman of the New Jersey Bar Association’s Family Law Section.

Jeralyn Lawrence, the incoming Family Law Section chair, chimed in:“This could open the floodgates of recalcitrant kids fighting with their parents, moving out and then suing for them to keep paying.”

oooooooooooooooooooops don't believe me

A New Jersey judge on Tuesday blasted the teenager who showed “gross disrespect” for her parents, left home and now wants mom and dad to pay almost all her expenses.

Family court Judge Peter Bogaard denied the emergency demand of 18-year-old Rachel Canning to have her folks pick up tuition at Morris Catholic HS, where she’s in the 12th grade and maintaining a 3.5 grade-point average.

In a potential precedent-setting lawsuit, Rachel claims her parents, Sean and Elizabeth Canning, threw her out of their Lincoln Park home, but should still be responsible for paying school tuition, room, board, transportation and other expenses.

Bogaard let the lawsuit go forward, but he had some choice words for Rachel.

He read a wildly disrespectful, expletive-laced voice mail Rachel left for her mom.

“Have you ever seen a young adult show such gross disrespect to a parent in a voice mail?” Bogaard said.“ I don’t see it in my house.”

Bogaard ordered both sides back to court on April 22.

yep yep yep ..........

She stopped short of saying he never touched her unlawfully.

Her parents’ lawyer, Laurie Rush-Masuret, denied all of Rachel’s claims.

The Cannings introduced documents from the state’s Division of Child Protection, showing the parents had been investigated for — and cleared of — abuse allegations.

And the bottom line, Rush-Masuret said, is that Rachel left on her own, explaining,“She has emancipated herself. She doesn’t want to be within her parents’ sphere of influence.”

Interesting, but for the law, you would choose to kill those who disagree with you.

Due to your incoherent writing it is difficult to know what you are trying to express, but the fact that this case is unusual or without merit, or may be, has nothing whatever to do with the fact that offspring sue their parents all the time.

So if you post some cribbed boilerplate saying no offspring can ever sue his or her parent(s) then you are either mistaken, ignorant or leaving something out on purpose, because _everyone_ knows of such cases.

show me where I said that ... Parental immunity doctrine refers to a principle that children cannot sue their parents, and that parents cannot sue their children, for tort claims.,

for tort claims.,
for tort claims.,
for tort claims.,

A simple search shows many incest related tort claims entries.

"The Development of Tort Liability Against the Passive Parent in Incest Cases"

"This article will outline those causes of action and provide some practical suggestions to pursuing domestic tort claims by or on behalf of children." (Covers abuse.)

You made a blanket statement. It was incorrect.

You went to your usual ballistic area of defensiveness. You haven't quite mobilized your usual subject-changing to the degree you normally do.

I am surprised nobody has tried that. Like what about the family of a victim? Sue the attacker's parents for failing to use either birth control or discipline and thus manufacturing a defective product, resulting in the severe injury or wrongful death of another.

If anyone should lose their account it ought to be you. Consistently abusive for no reason whatever. And you apparently game the system, too.
You posted incorrect information about the matter of age of consent, and apparently you still maintain that these cases everyone has read about of adult children suing one parent or other never happened....
This is in keeping with what you usually crib from wikipedia and in so doing get all or partly wrong, wrong, wrong, burp.
You're the most foul mouthed abusive mofo on here. Tally can be prick for sure, but you are the pot calling the kettle black my friend.

I only wish I could match his disingenuousness, arrogance and vileness when I deal with the various ultra "religious" types here.

However, my point was too simple for you:

He has a registered account. He should not, based on his behavior.

I cannot post my stronger opinions from a registered account. I understand that.

Was that simple enough for you? If not, go back and re read my post complaining about his not having his account taken away from him.
