Man, 30, ordered evicted from parents’ home by New York judge feels ‘great’ to be leaving

Michael Rotondo - the 30-year-old man who was taken to court by his mom and dad to get him booted out of their house - is packing up to leave. but it has not gone smoothly.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Michael Rotondo, 30, was ordered to move out of his parents' home by Friday, June 1, after his parents took him to court.

He reportedly waved to reporters and honked his horn as he pulled out of the driveway eight years after moving back in, rent-free. The Post-Standard of Syracuse reports that Rotondo left 2 ½ hours before the noon deadline set by a judge last week.

Rotondo lost custody and unsupervised visitation with his son in 2017. Rotondo says he'll move everything into a self-storage unit, and then look for a place. Rotondo is still a little ticked at his parents, though, who've been trying to get him out of the house since February, and apparently feels a bit rushed.

But in the weeks since the story made the rounds on CNN, TMZ, Fox News, "Jimmy Kimmel Live", and other TV shows and publications around the world, other people also named Michael Rotondo started getting mistaken for the evicted son.

Rotondo planned to spend the next week at an Airbnb in Syracuse.

New York State Supreme Court Judge Donald Greenwood disagreed and on May 22 granted the eviction notice, with a move-out deadline of Friday.

His parents, Mark and Christina, issued him with a letter in February and one again a month later offering him $1,000 to leave and the offer of help finding a job, but their son refused. The publication reports that a stranger called him on the phone with just a single word - "loser" - before hanging up, prompting Rotondo to call 911.

"This isn't a game show", Rotondo said, explaining to the newspaper why he called police. "While the police were there, the Legos were located and there was no further incident". Asked if that marks a dramatic change in his thinking, given his recent hard-fought court battle, Rotondo answered succinctly.
