It's a amusing situation for people named Michael Rotondo after a 30-year-old man in Central New York with the same name went to court to try and stop his parents from evicting him from their home.
The New York Post reported that Rotondo hasn't been on speaking terms with his parents and has said that he is unlikely to speak to them ever again. Local media report he left the house in Camillus, N.Y., just four hours before his high noon deadline to depart.
But in the weeks since the story made the rounds on CNN, TMZ, Fox News, "Jimmy Kimmel Live", and other TV shows and publications around the world, other people also named Michael Rotondo started getting mistaken for the evicted son. He says he was offered free packing supplies by a good Samaritan, but turned her down - saying it didn't feel right.
"I'm glad to be out of this place", Rotondo said Thursday. Rotondo told the judge Tuesday he knows his parents want him out of their Camillus home, near Syracuse. First, in October, there were the informal discussions about leaving the house; then, beginning in February, there were the notes that escalated from a little financial motivation to formal orders to leave; and finally, after an original 30-day deadline lapsed, there was the confrontation in court. "I have not been sued by my parents".
In other notes, they offered $1,100 to help their son find a new place to live and said they'd help fix his broken-down vehicle, which was parked on their property.

The lighthouses would also ensure safe navigation of the vessels in the South China Sea , one of the world's busiest waterways. The deployment of the nuclear-capable bomber on Woody Island was reportedly part of its military training exercises.
Rotondo tells TMZ. he called the cops on his father in the midst of the moving process because his dad refused to hand over some toys he wanted to pack for his child - yes, Michael has a son.
The caller said "loser", and then hung up.
Officers arrived and the Lego bricks were found in the meantime, the newspaper said.
He told WSTM that he previously had a job and and his own apartment in Syracuse, but when he lost his job he had to move in with his parents.
Greenwood ruled in favour of Rotondo's parents, Mark and Christina, setting into motion the 30-year-old's eviction.
