A New York judge has ordered a 30 year-old-man to move out of his parents home.
30-year-old Michael Rotondo appeared in a New York Supreme Court yesterday, after repeated attempts by his parents to evict him from their home in Camillus, Syracuse.
Mr Rotondo moved back in with his parents eight years ago, and since then, has never contributed to any household expenses or assisted in any household chores.
His parents issued him with a letter in February which read:
“Michael. 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. Mark and Christina Rotondo.”
After this was unsuccessful, a second letter was issued later that month in which Mark and Christina offered to pay their son $1,100 to leave their home, and offered to help him in finding a job.
They said: “There are jobs available even for those with a poor work history like you. Get one - you have to work!”
This also failed to work, so the Rotondo’s made the decision to sue their son and went to a local court.
However, the case was referred to the Supreme Court, where yesterday, Michael defended himself while his parents looked on from the gallery.
Michael Rotondo argued that he was entitled to six more months of living with his parents.
State Supreme Court Justice, Donald Greenwood, on the other hand, called his demand “outrageous” and served him with an eviction order.
According to Syracuse.com, Michael Rotondo asked media to interview him after the hearing, where he told reporters that he had his own room and did his own laundry.
Furthermore, he said that he runs his own business. When asked what that business was, he said: “My business is my business”.
