30-Year-Old Man Leaves Parents Home After Judge Orders Him Out

Adjust Comment Print

It's a amusing situation for people named Michael Rotondo after a 30-year-old man in Central New York with the same name went to court to try and stop his parents from evicting him from their home.

Michael Rotondo became a well-known name in May after his parents asked a court to help them evict him, after he ignored multiple letters asking him to leave, including offering him US$1,100 to help find an apartment.

Michael Rotondo, 30, prepares to leave his parents' house in Camillus, N.Y., Friday, June 1, 2018.

"This isn't a game show", Rotondo told the Post-Standard of Syracuse regarding the Legos.

Rotondo and his cousin packed a pickup truck loaded with bags of clothes, speakers, a lacrosse stick, pictures, books, a pair of loose boots, a shoe rack, work tools, and a sewing machine. But before he left, he called 911 to report that his father had refused to let him search the basement for his son's Lego toys, Syracuse.com reports. Instead, his father offered to look for the Lego and bring it out to him.

Rotondo made national headlines this month after his parents successfully sued to have him ordered by a judge to vacate their home. Michael Rotondo expressed relief Friday morning as he left his parents' home in Camillus.

Greenwood ruled in favour of Rotondo's parents, Mark and Christina, setting into motion the 30-year-old's eviction.

"I'm glad to be out of this place", Rotondo said Thursday.

His parents had said goodbye "more or less", he told reporters.

He gave an extensive interview to the Daily Mail about his 8-year-old son, claiming his problems with his parents stem from his attempts to regain custody rights to the boy.

Rotondo had never contributed to any household expenses or assisted in any household chores after moving back in eight years ago, according to papers filed with the NY court. For now, Rotondo says he's "off to an Airbnb".
