After battling in court over the matter for some time, the Judge on Tuesday sided with his parents, ordering him out of their house in Camillus, New York, where he has been living rent-free for almost a decade.
In one letter from 2 February, they wrote: 'Michael, after a discussion with your mother, we have decided that you must leave this house immediately.
The written notices included an offer to give Michael Rotondo $1,100 to help him find a place to stay and an offer to pay for the repairs of a broken auto left on the parents' property. You will not be allowed to return. "One of 14 days, one of 30 days", said Onondaga County Supreme Court Justice Donald Greenwood. A judge ordered Michael to leave the family home.
He said that his relationship with his parents has grown very strained, with the three of them never speaking or interacting inside the home.
Which they followed up with another note, which read: "Michael Joseph Rotondo, you are hereby evicted".
"I'm not bothering them by living here", Rotondo said in an interview with "Good Morning America" on Wednesday.

Greenwood listened quietly to Michael Rotondo's argument that he was entitled to six months more time. He asked for an additional six months to move out, but the court told him family members don't get special treatment.
Throughout the eviction process, Rotondo's parents made many suggestions as to how their son could afford to move out on his own, according to earlier Syracuse.com reporting.
When Greenwood tried to compliment Rotondo on his work researching other cases, Rotondo dismissed it.
The 30-year-old said he was going to appeal the decision which he said was ridiculous. I have plans to not stay with them anymore - just not today, just not in 30 days. The judge sided with his parents and told the grown-ass man - who doesn't pay rent - he needed to heed his parents' eviction notice.

The Rotondos are due in court Tuesday for a hearing at which Michael will have to argue why he shouldn't be forced to leave home, according to court records.
