U.S. parents sue 30-year-old son who refuses to move out

Judge Donald Greenwood ordered Michael Rotondo to vacate his childhood bedroom in his central NY parents' home, in a case that has attracted worldwide attention.

Resorting to drastic measures, New York-based parents have started legal proceedings against their 30-year-old son to evict him from their house.

A 30-year-old man didn't get the message that it was time to move out of his parents' home, even after they left him five notices and an offer of cash to help find new digs.

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.

In March, they gave him another note that said they "have seen no indication that you are preparing to leave". He says he became a father during the brief time when he lived on his own.

At the end of the chat, Baldwin said: "So that was one of the more surreal interviews we've taken part of here in the last little while". So far, their son claims he was not given "enough proper legal notice" to vacate the premises, and has refused to leave.

"Michael Joseph Rotondo, You are hereby evicted from 408 Weatheridge Drive, Camillus, New York effective immediately", she wrote.

Brandi Chastain's Hall Of Fame Plaque Looks Nothing Like Soccer Legend
One might say she even deserves a plaque that resembles her instead of an abominable Rex Ryan-lookin' effort. But when her Hall of Fame plaque was unveiled, the likeness looked nothing like Chastain.

Greenwood rejected Rotondo's suggestion as "outrageous", the Post-Standard of Syracuse reported. The Rotondos filed a petition in state court and the judge heard the case on Tuesday.

"I went for engineering and then when I couldn't do the math, I switched to business", he said.

"So I'm expecting something like that".

Michael Rotondo said that he's "not a burden to them in the home" and the parents "don't provide laundry or food".

"This is especially true for any weapons you may have", the note reads, according to Syracuse.com. Shortly thereafter, when he still did not vacate, they reportedly made a decision to seek legal counsel. "You need to be independent", resident Lashea Wright said.

The Rotondo family is going to court later this month, just before the son's 31st birthday. But when asked about his business, Rotondo replied: "My business is my business".
