Judge Orders 30-Year-Old Man To Move Out Of His Parents’ House Already
05/23/2018 02:07 pm ET by Elyse Wanshel, reporter for HuffPost

Two parents in New York will finally get to know what empty nest syndrome feels like.

On Tuesday, Michael Rotondo, 30, was ordered by State Supreme Court Justice Donald Greenwood to move out of his parents’ house after living there rent free for eight years, the Syracuse Post-Standard reports.

Christina and Mark Rotondo of Camillus, near Syracuse, sent their son numerous eviction notices and even gave him $1,100 to help him find a new place, WSTM, a local news channel, reports.

Despite being taken to court, Michael Rotondo still didn’t get the hint.

While in court, Rotondo refused to directly speak to his parents and argued with Greenwood for a half an hour that he was entitled to an additional six months before eviction, citing a legal case he found on the internet that appeared to back his claim.

Greenwood reportedly praised Rotondo’s legal argument but sided with his parents and ordered him to move out, calling his demand for six more months “outrageous.”

Rotondo fired back, calling the judge’s order “outrageous.”

He plans to appeal the decision, according to ABC News.
