In a real-life case of "Failure to Launch", an upstate NY judge Tuesday ordered a 30-year-old man to move out of his parents' house after they went to court to have him ejected.

A 30-year-old son refusing to leave home has been ordered to move out by a judge after his parents took him to court.

Three more notes were sent over the course of six weeks - with one even offering Michael $1,100 "so you can find a place to stay" and another suggesting options to either fix or get rid of his broken auto.

"You will not be allowed to return", the letter reads.

According to WSTM, the couple gave Michael a note on February 2, telling him to leave the home within 14 days.

Two parents in NY will finally get to know what empty nest syndrome feels like. But he says his parents complicated matters when they said he needed a job and health insurance if he was to continue living with them.

Judge Greenwood asked the attorney for the parents, Anthony Adorante, to put together an eviction order the judge would sign.

"Michael Joseph Rotondo, You are hereby evicted from 408 Weatheridge Drive, Camillus, New York, effective immediately", they wrote.

During his court appearance, Mr Rotondo told State Supreme Court Justice Donald Greenwood he knew his parents wanted him to move out of their home in Camillus, near Syracuse.

When that failed, they were left with no other option but to sue their son and take him to court.

On Tuesday, Rotondo said he was still living at home.

That said, Rotondo wishing to dispense with the notion that he has been a dilettante all of his life said he hadn't always lived at home.

"I'm getting my son back, that's what I'm doing", he said. "One of the things that they mentioned in that letter in several of those letters is we want you to go and get a job right".

Eventually, the judge ruled in the parents' favour, meaning the 30-year-old needs to leave the NY state property immediately. But when asked about his business, [Michael] replied: "'My business is my business'".

"The notion that, you know, that I'm just out of there, it really seems most unreasonable", he said.
