She may very well have a strong claim against them.  Under NJ law a child is not automatically emancipated upon turning 18 and in general is not deemed emancipated until his/her education is completed, and that can include completing college.  So long as a child is not emancipated, the parents have an obligation to support that child and that can include paying for college.  Here's a brief article that summarizes NJ law on the subject:  http://www.einhornharris.com/resources/articles-publications/child-support-a-legal-obligation-and-a-moral-dilemma/

It's taken just 40 years for the legal profession to kill health care.

Lawyers have gone after religion with great success, too.

And legal defense funds have worked to empower envirowacko's to nearly kill industry.

Now they're working on killing the American family.

Too, let's not forget that today a majority of politicians are attorneys.

Any question why america's in such a mess?

The case law on this subject is of quite old vintage.  In NJ it goes back at least as far as 1949 and the case of Cohen v. Cohen, 6 N.J.Super. 26 (App.Div. 1949).

I wouldn't if I were they.

As the sibling of one who has behaved at least this horridly toward his parents for the past 40+ years, this just makes me angry all over again. I really feel sorry for this family.

This morning, the headline described her as an "honor student' and a cheerleader.

I guess they're right.....sex sells.  [/s]
