Parents Sue to Evict Their Adult Son - and Guess What Happened?

Since he still refused to leave, his parents filed for an ejectment proceeding to end what some might call a failure to launch.

New York State Supreme Court Justice Donald Greenwood rejected Rotondo's argument on Tuesday that he should be allowed six months time to move, Syracuse.com reported.

Court documents say Mr Rotondo did not pay rent or help with chores, and has ignored his parents' offers of money to get him settled.

The parents also tried to help their son Michael find a new place to live and offered money for the objective.

Michael Rotondo has made headlines around the world after it was revealed that his mum and dad submitted official eviction notices for him to leave, offered to support him financially and even got the courts involved. The story went viral after Syracuse.com first reported on it last week; its article features a series of letters the Rotondos gave their son, starting with one on February 2 of this year giving him 14 days to move out.

"It wasn't hard", he said, adding that he had done "a brief search of the Internet for the removal of a family member from a home.it took minutes".

They also gave him $1,100 (£819) to leave, according to one letter, which suggested he sell some of his belongings including a broken-down Volkswagen Passat.

Justice Department to examine Trump's claim of Federal Bureau of Investigation surveillance of campaign
Giuliani also said the two sides were still negotiating whether Trump will be interviewed as part of the investigation. Giuliani acknowledged, though, the timeline could change significantly if the president did not cooperate.

Gutfeld said Rotondo is an example of someone "thinking everything should be free".

When that failed, they were left with no other option but to sue their son and take him to court.

"It sounded kind of like that [to me], too", Rotondo said.

The parents sent five eviction letters to Rotondo between February 2 and March 30. "I'm not a burden to them in the home".

The 30-year-old said he was going to appeal the decision which he said was ridiculous.

The judge explained that Rotondo was given numerous notices, but Rotondo tried to argue as his own attorney that he needed more time, according to WSYR. It started off with Rotondo saying he did not want to live with his parents anymore because "it's very tense, it's very awkward" but then saying he still would like more time to move out. "One of the things that they mentioned in that letter in several of those letters is we want you to go and get a job right".
