Mark and Christina Rotondo filed a lawsuit against their adult son, Michael Rotondo, in a desperate last measure after he refused to leave the family home earlier this year.

Michael had lived with his parents for the past eight years, rent free, since he lost his job.

The court case was a culmination of several attempts by his parents to kick him out through formal letters, payments and life advice.

In one letter, his father wrote “after a discussion with your mother, we have decided that you must leave this house immediately”.

“You have 14 days to vacate. You will not be allowed to return. We will take whatever actions are necessary to enforce this decision,” he wrote on February 2.

According to reports of court documents, Michael did not help with chores or pay board and ignored other efforts to help him get back on his feet.

In a letter dated February 18, theRotondosoffered their son $1100 so he could ‘find a place to stay’ and also gave him some life advice including organisational skills, searching for jobs and selling valuable items to generate income.

But by the end of March it became clear to hisparents he would not leave and Michaelwas finally taken to the Supreme Court by his parents after all their other attempts failed.

TALK NOW: Today, a judge told Michael Rotondo it was time to stand on his own two feet. But the 30-year-old said he needs more time. When do you think a person should move out of their parents’ home? https://t老域名出售/p0n8Ran0t3#kwch12pic.twitter老域名出售/A1dls9WVSo

During the Supreme Court hearing, Justice Donald Greenwood tried to convince Mr Rotondo to move out for good on his own.

ButMrRotondo argued,as he represented himself in court, that he was entitled to stay for another six months until he found somewhere else to live.

Justice Greenwooddescribed the demand ‘outrageous’ and served him with an eviction order following a 30-minute court appearance.

A judge ordered Michael Rotondo, 30, to be evicted from his parents’ house at 408 Weatheridge Drive, Camillus, in New York state.
