Parents sue 30-year-old son to evict him from their house

A NY judge has ruled that a 30-year-old man will have to move out of his parents' Syracuse-area home after they sued to evict him.

His parents gave him five written notices in the last few months and offered to help pay for him to find a new place, but Rotondo said he was owed six months notice. With reporters watching in court, Michael Rotondo sparred with Greenwood for 30 minutes, at one point refusing the judge's request to work things out directly to his parents, who were sitting quietly nearby.

"I want you out of that household", Greenwood told him, according to ABC News.

A judge ordered Michael to leave the family home.

Christina and Mark Rotondo made the decision to sue their son - who moved back in with them eight years ago - after he ignored repeated formal letters they wrote asking he move out. But he insisted that they were providing for him with housing, in arguing why he should be granted another six months to find a new place to live.

During the hearing on Tuesday, Michael represented himself and cited the case of Kosa v. Legg: "that there is 'Common law requirement of six-month notice to quit before tenant may be removed through ejectment action".

Michael Rotondo called the ruling "outrageous" and said he planned to appeal the decision, WABC reported.

"The notion that, you know, that I'm just out of there, it really seems most unreasonable", he said.

In a February 18 letter, his parents offer him $1,100 to find another place to stay, ending with: "There are jobs available even for those with a poor work history like you".

When Justice Greenwood called Michael up to the bench, the long-haired and bearded son tried to bring the podium with him - noting it held the reporters' microphones.

Today, the parents' lawyer, Anthony Adorante, told the judge he was looking for a court order that could be enforceable by sheriff's deputies.

In a redacted filing, Michael said he runs his own "successful" business, calling it "the overwhelmingly superior choice for the [his] economic well being over the working of a full-time job". No specified deadline was stated in court, but the lawyer mentioned that it would include reasonable time for Rotondo to vacate.
