Michael Rotondo, evicted NY son, moves out after Lego row

Michael Rotondo, the 30-year-old man who grabbed national headlines when his parents had to go to the New York State Supreme Court to get him out of their house, is finally, really, and truly leaving home, reports USA Today.

According to the Syracuse.com report, Rotondo moved all of his belongings from the home, including a Volkswagon Passat that had been sitting in his parents' driveway, untouched for months.

"This isn't a game show", Rotondo told the Post-Standard of Syracuse regarding the Legos.

The legal battle isn't over yet, however, as Rotondo believes his parents still possess some artwork worth several thousand dollars and plans to file a lawsuit to get the possessions back. "I can't have my phone getting jammed up with nonsense like that", Rotondo said as police responded to his complaint.

"I woke up. My buddy sends me a link for a BBC article saying 'Haha this is amusing are you getting sued by your parents?' I was like 'Haha that is amusing especially that is the same name, same spelling same age, '" the Capital Region's Rotondo told the Syracuse TV station. Rotondo is still a little ticked at his parents, though, who've been trying to get him out of the house since February, and apparently feels a bit rushed. That Rotondo, of Camillus, lost his case and finally moved out Friday after receiving a $3,000 donation from InfoWars radio host Alex Jones. "My inbox has been filled with many people laughing at me". Instead of letting him in, his father offered to look for specific items and bring them out if he found them.

Rotondo will reportedly be staying in an Airbnb while he figured out a long-term plan.

"Rotondo said that wasn't good enough and called police".

Officers arrived and the Lego bricks were found in the meantime, the newspaper said.

During his auto trouble, he told reporters he said goodbye "more or less" to his parents before jumping into his rumbling station wagon.

Greenwood ruled in favour of Rotondo's parents, Mark and Christina, setting into motion the 30-year-old's eviction.
