The unusual case of a NY state couple going to court to get their 30-year-old son to move out has ended in favor of the parents, according to media outlets in upstate NY.
A couple from Camillus, a suburb of Syracuse, is heading to Supreme Court on Tuesday in an attempt to get their 30-year-old son out of their home.
Christina and Mark Rotondo say they've been trying to get their 30-year-old son, Michael Rotondo, to leave their home for several months.
Rotondo's parents reportedly offered him more than $1,000 and help in fixing his auto to get him on his feet once leaving.
Update: Judge Greenwood ruled for Michael Rotondo to vacate his mother's home by June 1 at noon.
"You will not be allowed to return", the letter reads. Attorney Anthony Adorante said it would give Rotondo reasonable time to vacate.
In the fifth and final letter Michael's parents offered to pay for the repairs for his broken down vehicle to get it off their property, and he still refused to leave.
When March 15 came and went the couple filed a case at the Onondaga County Supreme Court to see if they could properly evict their son.
According to Rotondo, his reticence to move out of his parent's home stems from the ongoing legal costs attached to fighting for custody, noting that as a "poor person", Rotondo is waived having to come up with prohibitive court fees.
Justice Donald Greenwood told the son his bid to remain in his parents' home another six months was "outrageous".
Needless to say, if you thought your family was dysfunctional, you have nothing on the Rotondos. Matters only became further complicated when Rotondo's own parents, Mark and Christina soon after insisted that Rotondo needed to get a job and health insurance (do you suppose?) if he planned on living with them.
That petition resulted in Tuesday's ruling, which Rotondo may appeal.
Eventually, the judge ruled in the parents' favour, meaning the 30-year-old needs to leave the NY state property immediately. When asked outside the courtroom, he replied, "My business is my business". He said that he is going to ask the courts for three months and he'll hopefully have his shit together by then.
