Parents sue deadbeat son to get out of their house

Rotondo said in court that he was frustrated with the judge, who he accused of not reading the entire case.

But he argued that as a family member, he's entitled to six months more time.

The New York family drama eventually rolled into the court system, where a judge on Tuesday ruled in the parents' favor and ordered Michael Rotondo to leave after having a room for eight years.

When that failed, they were left with no other option but to sue their son and take him to court. This is especially true for any weapons you may have.

"If you want help finding a place your Mother has offered to help you", the letter reads.

During the proceeding, the judge applauded Rotondo's legal research, but presented him with a similar case which proves he's not eligible for a required six month notice to leave.

Rotondo's parents and their attorney had no comment leaving court, but Rotondo provided some insight into the dynamic under their roof.

"They said, 'you need to get a job, you need to get health insurance, '" he said.


"I want you out of that household", Greenwood told him, according to ABC News.

Citing a conversation with Rotondo as he rode the bus home from the courthouse on Tuesday, The New York Post reports that he claims that "his parents are forcing him out as "retaliation" for not allowing them to see his child before he lost custody himself last September".

He said that his relationship with his parents has grown very strained, with the three of them never speaking or interacting inside the home.

The parents filed an official eviction petition on May 7.

Despite the outcome, Michael Rotondo said his fight isn't over yet.

"Michael, here is $1100 from us to you so you can find a place to stay", a letter from February 18 starts.

Michael told reporters he would appeal. Greenwood said Rotondo's claims were based off an Internet search and showed him a copy of the appellate court decision that overrode Rotondo's argument.

In a redacted filing, Michael said he runs his own "successful" business, calling it "the overwhelmingly superior choice for the [his] economic well being over the working of a full-time job".
