Michael Rotondo, 30-Year-Old Evicted From Parents' Home, Finally Moves Out

A 30-year-old U.S. man evicted from his parents' home in a court battle has finally moved out - after calling the police on his dad in a row about Lego.

Michael Rotondo was ordered to move out of his parents' home in Camillus on Friday. Local media report he left the house in Camillus, N.Y., just four hours before his high noon deadline to depart.

This type of family drama usually doesn't make the news, but Rotondo's parents took the unusual step of filing a lawsuit against their son to get him out of their house, where he'd been living for eight years.

Rotondo told the newspaper he called the police because he believed his son's Legos were in the basement and his father wouldn't let him look for them. His father found and retrieved the toy building blocks, handing them over at some point after officers arrived, and that whole episode certainly sounds like a productive and necessary use of police time.

Rotondo made national headlines this month after his parents successfully sued to have him ordered by a judge to vacate their home. Rotondo refused the judge's request to work things out directly with his parents, who sat quietly nearby.

A cousin with a truck is helping him move his belongings from the house where he has lived rent-free for the last eight years into storage. The hatchback got a little help from some jumper cables, and Rotondo offered the members of the media gathered outside a tasteful honk of the horn before leaving the block.

There were no tearful goodbyes: Rotondo says he'll have no further relationship with his parents.

He gave an extensive interview to the Daily Mail about his 8-year-old son, claiming his problems with his parents stem from his attempts to regain custody rights to the boy. Asked if that marks a dramatic change in his thinking, given his recent hard-fought court battle, Rotondo answered succinctly.
