In November, we reported that a New Jersey judge ordered parents to pay their estranged 21-year-old daughter’s college tuition.

It appears that the parents didn’t take the legal order seriously.

A 21-year-old woman, Caitlyn Ricci, who’s already been to court once to get her parents to pay her college tuition is now back before the judge, arguing her mom and dad — Michael Ricci and Maura McGarvey — have failed to follow through and cough up the money.

The case previously made national headlines and sent media pundits debating a core question: Are parents in America now going to be legally mandated to pay for their children’s college?

n Ms. Ricci’s case, that answer was yes. The judge ruled months ago that her parents would have to pay $906 in tuition for her Rowan College studies, despite the fact that Mr. Ricci and Ms. McGarvey argued their daughter hasn’t spoken to them in some time and actually moved out to live with her grandmother.

In October, Ms. Ricci sued her parents again, this time for $16,000 for tuition to Temple University, Yahoo News reported. And shortly after, a judge ruled once again in her favor.

On that count, Mr. Ricci and Ms. McGarvey are planning an appeal, Yahoo reported.

Ms. Ricci reported to the court just recently that her parents haven’t paid anything, and a judge ruled this week that they have until the end of the year to start providing the tuition, Yahoo reported.
