A judge held an unusual hearing in New Jersey on Tuesday: a lawsuit brought by an 18-year-old who says her parents kicked her out of their house. Rachel Canning is seeking to force her parents to give her financial support and money for college, in addition to pay for tuition at her private school.

Superior Court Family Division Judge Peter Bogaard, who heard the case in Morristown, N.J., on Tuesday afternoon, denied Canning’s requests in what’s seen as the first round of hearings in the case.

“All requests by plaintiff for emergent relief at this point are denied,” tweeted Michael Izzo of the Daily Record, which was apparently the first news outlet to report the news of the lawsuit.
