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

It's a milestone so common, it's become a Hollywood trope: The son packs his things, carries all those vestiges of his former life across the threshold of the front door and, with the unwavering encouragement of his parents, finally leaves their house to face the wider world.

Michael Rotondo, the 30-year-old man who defied his parents' various eviction notices, is finally moving out of the NY home.

Michael Rotondo, the man evicted after months of wrangling with his parents, complied Friday with the ruling that a county supreme court justice handed down last week.

According to local media, he left a couple of hours before a midday deadline set by a judge last week.

But he did leave again, this time with 2 1/2 hours to spare.

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.

Mr Rotondo said he wanted no further contact with his mother and father once he moved out of the property, which is 260 miles (420km) north of New York City. Shortly after the ruling was rendered, global media took notice - and so did the writers of thinkpieces and comment-board diatribes everywhere.

"I love my parents immensely", he said.

NY man plans to appeal the judge's ruling. "It has been a insane crazy ride", the other Rotondo told CNYCentral on Thursday. "I have not been sued by my parents". "My inbox has been filled with many people laughing at me".

We're told when cops arrived, they asked Rotondo if any weapons were involved in his altercation with his dad and he said no. but revealed he does own a gun and showed them where he kept it. Cops offered to store it for him since he's dealing with a volatile situation and he could get it back later. but Michael chose to keep it and added it to the moving pile.

The caller said "loser", and then hung up. Instead, the father offered to look for items and, if he found them, bring them out.

"This isn't a game show", Rotondo said, explaining to the newspaper why he called police. The Legos were found after police arrived.

But that's all in the rear-view mirror.

As for his destination, Rotondo said he planned to spend the next week at an Airbnb in Syracuse.

He told WSTM that he previously had a job and and his own apartment in Syracuse, but when he lost his job he had to move in with his parents.
