The lawsuit filed by a New Jersey high school senior — who accused her parents of kicking her out when she turned 18 and refusing to pay for her education — should never have seen the light of day, legal analyst Kendall Coffey says.

"Talk about a 'you've got to kidding me' lawsuit. It looks like it's going absolutely nowhere," Coffey told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"This shouldn't get to first base – it shouldn't have even stepped up to the plate."

In a lawsuit, Rachel Canning of Lincoln Park, demanded her parents pay the outstanding tuition for her private high school as well as her living expenses.

Story continues below video.




She also wants money from an existing education fund to pay for some of her college education.

On Tuesday, a New Jersey State Superior Court judge denied the request for high school funds and living expenses. A hearing on the college expenses has been set for April.

Kendall Coffey, a former U.S. Attorney and founding member of Coffey Burlington, PL, in Miami, said today's lawsuit-happy culture is to blame for the bizarre court case.

It just seems like you can sue for anything. So, heck, why not sue your parents if you're unhappy with them?" Coffey said.

"I don't think it's going anywhere, but let me tell you, if a kid can sue their parents for not paying for this or not paying for that, heaven help us all. Let's just hope this is the last we'll hear about this lawsuit."
