MORRISTOWN, N.J. — A press conference is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Wednesday to announce that the New Jersey high school cheerleader who filed a lawsuit against her parents has reunited with them.

The parents hired a new lawyer Tuesday who said the case does not belong in the court system and should be settled “in a swift and amicable” way.

Rachel Canning, 18, “has returned home and reunited with her parents and siblings,” the lawyer, Angelo Sarno, said Wednesday in a statement. “Her return home is not contingent on any financial and/or other considerations.”

The private lives of Sean and Elizabeth Canning of Lincoln Park, N.J., and their torn relationship with daughter Rachel were thrown open to international scrutiny since their daughter filed a lawsuit Feb. 24 in the Family Division of state Superior Court here. It claims her parents cut her off financially when she turned 18 on Nov. 1, mostly because she would not break up with her boyfriend.
