Michael Rotondo, 30 years old, has lived with his parents for the past eight years in Camillus, New York. A few months ago, his parents decided he needs to move out and get his own house.
They left him a note on February 2nd that reads, “Michael, after a discussion with your Mother, we have decided you must leave this house immediately. You have 14 days to vacate. You will not be allowed to return. We will take whatever actions are necessary to enforce this decision.” Michael still did not leave the house.
His parents did all kinds of things, such as helping him find a job and encouraging him to sell some of his items for money. They even offered him a small amount of money for getting out and getting him on his feet in looking for his own place.
Michael was not cooperative, so his parents took him to court. Michael cited a 2006 court case, Kosa vs. Legg, in which he said his parents must require him six months notice to find a new place to live.
New York State Supreme Court Judge, Donald Greenwood, was not having it. He ordered Michael to be evicted from his parents’ house immediately. Michael calls the ruling “ridiculous” and that he plans to appeal the decision.
Michael was recently fired from Best Buy for refusing to work on Saturdays, which is the only day he has custody of his son. He is suing Best Buy for over $300,000 in damages.
