A judge, in a hearing in New York on Tuesday, ordered a 30-year-old man to move out of his parent's house after the couple attempted and failed to get their unemployed son out of the house.

Reports state that the New York State Supreme Court Judge Donald Greenwood, during the 30-minute hearing, sided with the couple — Mark and Christina Rotondo — from Camillus, New York.

The couple had been trying to evict their only son Michael Rotondo for months because he refused to pay rent or contribute around the house in any more, according to reports. 

Michael, in court on Tuesday, argued that legal precedent allowed him a notice period of at least six months before his parents could ask him to move out of their house. 

The judge, however, mentioned another case which nullified the suggestion and said that six months is an "outrageous" amount of time to ask for as a notice period for eviction. Michael, instead, responded with saying that it was "outrageous" that his parents were attempting to evict him. 

Reports state that Michael appeared frustrated after the hearing and left the court immediately, refusing to speak to his parents. He said that he did not think the judge read the case entirely and that he will appeal the decision, CNY Central reported. 

"I am just so outraged," he told Daily Mail outside the court after the heading, while adding that he has been taunted by ridiculed by certain conservative groups for being a "liberal millennial."

Michael also said that he was just staying at his parents' house and that they did not provide food or do his laundry for him.

Judge Greenwood, during the hearing, also tried to convince the 30-year-old to come to an agreement with his parents on his own, however, Michael refused to do that. The judge then ordered him to move out of the house and ordered adult protective services to probe. 

The New York judge also asked the couple to come up with an eviction letter, saying that he would sign it.  It has not yet been decided how long Michael has to move out the house, reports state. However, considering he is planning to appeal, it is likely that he will be able to stay in the home until the appeal is decided. 

The couple's home is owned by Michael's mother, who bought the house in 1988. According to Zillow's estimates, the four-bedroom home is now worth around $218,000.

The couple, over the past three months, have given their son at least five written notices to move out of the house, however, he has ignored the orders all the five times. 

When the Rotondos attempted to get him evicted out of the house, they learned that since Michael is a family member, they would have to remove him from their house through an ejectment proceeding. 

Michael, who is acting as his own lawyer, in response to the legal proceedings has said that his parents have not given him a reason to be evicted, or enough time to find a new place to move in.
