In a real-life case of “Failure to Launch,” an upstate New York judge Tuesday ordered a 30-year-old man to move out of his parents’ house after they went to court to have him ejected.

Michael Rotondo told the judge he knows his parents want him out of the split-level ranch they share. But he argued that as a family member, he’s entitled to six months more time. State Supreme Court Justice Donald Greenwood rejected that as outrageous.

Rotondo told reporters he’ll appeal.

Mark and Christina Rotondo brought the court case after several eviction letters offering money and other help were ignored. “Michael, here is $1,100 from us to you so you can find a place to stay,” a Feb. 18 letter starts. It goes on to suggest he sell his stereo, some tools and any weapons he may have to gain money and space. “There are jobs available even for those with a poor work history like you,” the letter reads. “Get one — you have to work!” It’s signed “Christina and Mark Rotondo.”

The judge instructed the parents’ lawyer to draft an eviction order. Attorney Anthony Adorante said it would give Rotondo reasonable time to vacate.

This reminds me of the movie Step Brothers. Two overgrown babies, 40 who still behave like children and live at home. The parents sold the house to get rid of them. LOL I am going to show this article to a friend of mine. She has a 30 year old son laying on her couch all day eating and watching TV.

A 30 year old living at home is not that rare, but the way he tried to fight this in court about his rights is insane. He needs to find a woman , fall in love and get married, start his own life. He's at a cross roads where he can make his life better by being independent or become a freeloader looking for someone else to subsidize his easy living. I would put a lock on his bedroom door and toss his things outside of the house. He has no legal right to live in his parents house past the age of 18 years old. After that is based on an agreement .

Good for the parents. But it sounds like either someone didn't prepare their child for real life or they over-prepared their child and he took advantage of that.

His dating resume is going to suffer too:

"I lived with my parents throughout my 20s then was evicted through court order" might be something you leave off.
