Fed up with their son living under their roof, a New York couple took the matter to court. On Tuesday, the 30-year-old man presented his case before the magistrates, arguing that his parent can’t evict him from the house in the absence of a six-month notice.
New York Couple Told Jury that Son Never Helped Around the House After Losing Job
Christina and Mark Rotondo, a New York couple had recently been called to the Supreme Court of New York to resolve a rather bizarre domestic affair.
According to court documents, the Rotondos have been having family disputes ever since Michael Rotondo, their 30-year-old son, moved back with them.
Mrs. Rotondo declared that Michael lost his job eight years ago and was forced to move back in the couple’s New York apartment.
However, as Michael’s parents pointed out, the man lived liked a king – he never paid rent, do chores or goes grocery shopping.
Growing tired of Michael’s outrageous behavior, Christina and Mark handed him a letter of warning on the second of February. According to the note, Michael was being informed that his parents vote for him moving out of the house. More than that, he was not allowed to return.
Before taking matters to court, the New York couple handed Michael four more letters.
The last letter even had an encased $1,100 cheque which should have helped Michael find an apartment.
More than that, the New couple even offered advice on how to put some order into his life or how to land a good-paying job.
Of course, Michael ignored their warnings, and the affair was taken to court.
During Tuesday’s trial, Judge Donald Greenwood sided with Michael’s parents. He also dismissed Michael’s legal grounds.
The conclusion of the trial was that Michael has to move out of his parent’s house. However, no eviction date was ordered.
