A 30-year-old man didn't get the message that it was time to move out of his parents' home, even after they left him five notices and an offer of cash to help find new digs.
Rotondo would have to move out, the judge ruled.
He also ordered adult protective services to investigate the situation. But he won't leave without a legal fight.
In case you've not been following this story here in the United States, do not laugh. A half-dozen camera crews covered today's court appearance.
He said while he lived under the same roof as his parents, he did not speak to them.
"You say you're entitled to six months, which really seems to be kind of outrageous, that somebody in this day and age could be in somebody else's home with a six-month notice before they have to leave", Greenwood said.
The family is due in court Tuesday.
When Greenwood tried to compliment Rotondo on his work researching other cases, Rotondo dismissed it.
To be fair, Rotondo is having a hard week.

Michael Rotondo said he maintained a distance from his parents, despite living under their roof.
Rotondo's reply was simple: "No, no I don't".
Still, Rotondo insisted the judge was wrong. Rotondo is calling his parent's effort "retaliatory". Rotondo noted that microphones placed by the media were on the lawyer's lectern. Another message urged him to either fix his auto, a Volkswagen Passat, or take it down off of the "ramps" that it was on at the Rotondos' house.
There, he again lambasted the judge's eviction order and vowed to appeal.
The Rotondo's even offered their son money to find another place to live and fix his broken auto that sits in front of the home.
When asked how he can manage to avoid them, and whether he lives in a basement, he replied that he lives in a bedroom but did not want to provide more detail. Michael claimed while his family provided him with accommodation, they didn't feed him or do his laundry. "I'm not dragging my business into my business", he said with a smile.
Another reporter asked Rotondo if he has a Web business.
But when he stayed put despite first written requests and later eviction notices drafted by lawyers, his parents were forced to go the legal route.
The article featured a series of letters the Rotondos gave their son, starting with one on February 2 giving him 14 days to move out.
