A 30-year-old man has been ordered to vacate his family home by a judge after his parents sued to get him out of their upstate New York house.

Mark and Christina Rotondo filed suit against their adult son, Michael, for refusing to vacate their home earlier this year. The younger Mr Rotondo has lived with his parents for the last eight years rent-free and maintains that he is owed six months to find somewhere to live.

Acting as his own lawyer, Michael Rotondo filed a motion to get his parents’ case tossed by claiming they were legally required to give him six months to get out.

In a court appearance on Tuesday – where the self-employed millennial represented himself – a judge disagreed. State Supreme Court Justice Donald Greenwood issued an eviction order and told adult protective services to investigate the situation, according to news portals.
