MORRISTOWN, N.J. -  A northern New Jersey honor student is suing her parents for financial support and to force them to pay for her college.

A judge in Morristown has scheduled a hearing Tuesday in the lawsuit filed by 18-year-old Rachel Canning.

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, such as being respectful, keeping a curfew and doing some chores.

She's been living in Rockaway Township with the family of her best friend. The newspaper reports that the friend's father, former Morris County Freeholder John Inglesino, is funding the lawsuit.
