Mark and Christina Rotondo said they have sent their son Michael multiple written notices over the past several months, asking him to leave. With reporters watching in court, Michael Rotondo sparred with Greenwood for 30 minutes, at one point refusing the judge's request to work things out directly to his parents, who were sitting quietly nearby.
Mark and Christina Rotondo were reportedly fed up with their son not paying bills or help with chores.
The couple finally chose to take legal action after learning they could only remove a family member from their home through an ejectment proceeding.
On Tuesday, a judge ruled in the parents' favor and ordered Michael Rotondo to leave after having a room for eight years without paying any rent.
The parents told the court that Rotondo has refused to move out of their house or get a job.
During the proceeding, the judge applauded Rotondo's legal research, but presented him with a similar case which proves he's not eligible for a required six month notice to leave.
Supreme Court Justice Donald Greenwood also branded Rotondo's plea for more time "outrageous" and issued him with an eviction order.More news: Nadal powers into Italian Open third round
In this interview with CNN, he explains why he will never reconcile with his parents.
He ignored all of them, so the couple went through Camillus Town Court in April to begin the eviction process.
Michael Rotondo said he maintained a distance from his parents, despite living under their roof. "I just want a reasonable amount of time to vacate with the consideration of the fact that I was not really prepared to support myself at the time I was served these notices".
But that hasn't spurred him to find a new place to live - even though his parents want him to move out and on with his life.
They also offered to help him find somewhere to live, and told him he needed to find a job, saying, "There are jobs available even for those with a poor work history like you".
When Greenwood called Rotondo up to the bench, the long-haired and bearded son tried to bring the podium with him - noting it held the reporters' microphones.
In that time, Rotondo later said, he plans to file an appeal.
