Parents win right to make 30-year-old son leave home

A 30-year-old man who refused to move out of his parents house after they gave him five quit notices and were forced to approach the court in NY to ask for his eviction, has granted an interview to CNN.

The judge said that's not true, pointing to an appellate court decision ruling, and asked the parents' lawyer to come up with an eviction order that Greenwood could sign.

His parents, Christina and Mark Rotondo, took the highly unusual step of turning to the court after their son ignored repeated requests to move out, local media reported.

"You say you're entitled to six months, which really seems to be kind of outrageous, that somebody in this day and age could be in somebody else's home with a six-month notice before they have to leave", Greenwood said.

After the court decision, Michael told camera crews to meet him outside, where he told them he plans to appeal. Michael claimed while his family provided him with accommodation, they didn't feed him or do his laundry. The couple's lawyer said he;d like to get an eviction notice that would be enforceable by the sheriff.

In one written on February 2, the parents wrote: "Michael, after a discussion with your mother, we have decided that you must leave this house immediately".

On Tuesday, a judge ruled in the parents' favor and ordered Michael Rotondo to leave after having a room for eight years without paying any rent.

Rotondo told HLN he did not know why his parents have pushed for him to leave so quickly.

On Feb. 18, the parents offered Michael $1,100 to find a new place.

The Rotondos took Michael to the New York Supreme Court.

The Post and Daily Mail also note that Rotondo has another legal case running: He's suing Best Buy, claiming that he was wrongly fired for refusing to work on Saturdays.

The truth, Rotondo told reporters after the proceedings, is that he isn't ready to move out of his parents' home. They did tell him to get a job and move his broken-down vehicle.

"You have heretofore been our guest and there is no lease or agreement that gives you any right to stay here without our consent". He said he supports himself through his business; but wouldn't elaborate, telling reporters: "My business is my business".

Rotondo also said things with his parents are now very adversarial, and he intends to write a letter to their attorney asking for three more months to pack up his stuff and get out.
