Mark and Christina Rotondo wanted their 30-year-old son, Michael, to move out of their home in Camillus, NY.
Michael acted as his own lawyer and fought to have the suit thrown out, claiming his parents are legally required to give him six months notice to evacuate. Then they wrote him a letter and offered him $1,100, all to no avail.
"Michael, After a discussion with your Mother, we have decided that you must leave this house immediately", reads the February 2 note that's signed, "Mark and Christina Rotondo".
"It seems to me like I should be provided with, you know, 30 days or so.to have to vacate the premises", Rotondo told WTSM. You will not be allowed to return (sic),"Syracuse.com quotes from the first eviction letter sent on February 2".
Rotondo told the judge he shouldn't be forced to move out and needed more time.
Doctors sweat 1st urban case of Ebola
The outbreak tests the new experimental Ebola vaccine, which proved highly effective in the West Africa outbreak a few years ago. The ministry said just one person had been confirmed dead from the virus, but 25 people are suspected to have died from it.
Court documents indicate that throughout his eight years living with his parents, Michael contributed nothing to household expenses or chores, because he didn't feel he was expected to. Attorney Anthony Adocante said it would give Michael reasonable time to vacate his parent's home. He said Tuesday that he plans to get some things from home and isn't sure where he will stay.
The Rotondos took Michael to the New York Supreme Court. He also ordered adult protective services to investigate, expressing concern about what was going on. He gently corrected Rotondo by pointing to an appellate court decision ruling that family members don't get special treatment absent rare circumstances. He says he became a father during the brief time when he lived on his own.
He ignored all of them, so the couple went through Camillus Town Court in April to begin the eviction process. And I'm expecting that I will be able to.
Rotondo told CNN's sister network HLN on Wednesday that he would love to leave as soon as possible - "I don't like living there" - but he was not able to do so immediately. But when asked about his business, [Michael] replied: "'My business is my business'".
He also argued that he can not be evicted because he is a relative of the house's owners. In the second-to-last letter, on March 5, the parents warned they would take actions to make sure he left the home.
