Judge in New York orders 30-year-old man to leave home after parents take legal action to evict him

Pharma news - May 22, 2018 - 4:18pm

A judge in New York has ordered a 30-year-old man to leave his parents’ house, after they took legal proceedings to evict their unemployed son. Christina and Mark Rotondo sent their son Michael five notices between February 2 and March 30, to try and get him out of their home, before eventually suing to force him to leave. On Tuesday Judge Donald Greenwood, presiding over the Onondaga County Supreme Court in Syracuse, upstate New York, ordered that Michael Rotondo leave the family home. “This is outrageous!” the 30-year-old yelled in court, after the verdict was handed down. The case was brought after a series of letters from his parents failed to convince Mr Rotondo to leave. The first note read: “Michael, after a discussion with your mother, we have decided that you must leave this house immediately. “You have 14 days to vacate. You will not be allowed to return. We will take whatever actions are necessary to enforce this decision.” Mr Rotondo, who is unemployed, insisted that that was not enough notice. Eleven days later, a second letter threatened legal action if he did not leave the home in the upstate New York town of Camillus, 250 miles north of New York City. “Michael Joseph Rotondo, You are hereby evicted from 408 Weatheridge Drive, Camillus, New York effective immediately,” the note read. “You have heretofore been our guest and there is no lease or agreement that gives you any right to stay here without our consent. “A legal enforcement procedure will be instituted immediately if you do not leave by 15 March 2018.” Further notes followed, with one even offering Mr Rotondo $1,100 (£820) “so you can find a place to stay”, and another suggesting a series of options to either fix or get rid of his broken Volkswagen Passat. Stay at home children “There are jobs available even for those with a poor work history like you,” one of the notes reads. “Get one — you have to work!” But the 30-year-old, who has lived at his parents’ for the past eight years, still refused to leave — prompting his mother to enquire at their local town court in April whether they could evict their son. They were told that because Michael is family, they would need a Supreme Court justice to officially send him packing, and so they filed an official eviction proceeding on May 7. Mr Rotondo, who is acting as his own lawyer, fought unsuccessfully to have his mother’s suit thrown out of court, claiming his parents are legally required to give him six months’ notice to leave. During the 30 minute hearing, the judge tried to convince Mr Rotondo to speak directly to his parents, while he waited. Mr Rotondo refused, saying he had made his legal arguments. The judge praised Mr Rotondo's legal research in finding a prior case that appeared to show that family members get six months before an eviction, but provided a copy of the appellate court decision that overrode the case that Mr Rotondo cited. The 30-year-old even tried to force an adjournment of the hearing, noting that the room for the hearing was incorrectly listed. He also claimed he had “never been expected to contribute to household expenses, or assisted with chores and the maintenance of the premises.” “This is simply a component of his living agreement with the petitioners,” he wrote in response to his mother’s suit. He said in the court documents that he runs his own “successful” business, calling it “the overwhelmingly superior choice for the [his] economic well-being, over the working of a full-time job.” When asked what the business was, outside court he replied: “My business is my business.” After the court hearing he returned to his parents’ house. It was unclear whether he was investigating further legal action.

Paris, May 1968 — a view from the barricades by Gökşin Sipahioğlu

Pharma news - May 22, 2018 - 4:06pm

Fifty years ago, as France exploded in mass protests, words scrawled on the walls of the Sorbonne summed up the revolutionary zeal of the time: “Run free, comrade, we’ve left the old world behind!”

Half a century later, the May 1968 demonstrations that brought millions of idealistic students and striking workers to the streets remain a watershed moment in France’s cultural history.

Sexual liberation, artistic creativity and anti-capitalism were the order of the day. For those who were there, it was an unforgettable time.

The protests swept through a France that was still ruled by the strict conservatism of Gen. Charles de Gaulle, who was then president and banned the concerts of French rocker Johnny Hallyday for causing scenes of mass hysteria.

The aftershocks of the protests would be felt for years to come. (AFP)

Gökşin Sipahioğlu, a Turkish photojournalist and one of the father figures of photojournalism, covered news stories from the 1956 war in the Sinai Peninsula to Mao’s revolution in China, the Cuban missile crisis, the 1972 Munich Olympics killings, and the Prague Spring and Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia.

As a correspondent for the Turkish daily Hürriyet, he came to Paris to cover the May 1968 student uprising. While many photojournalists were on the streets, Gökşin brought his curiosity, audacity, uncanny anticipation of events, and keen eye to the frontlines to freshly illuminate the quickly unfolding events. He remarked at the time:

“At first I did not understand what was going on. For hours on the first day of rioting the police allowed the students to do as they liked. The students wrecked everything, ripped up paving stones, chopped down trees, erected barricades, set cars on fire. Later, in a matter of minutes, the CRS [riot police] charged the students. I asked myself, ‘Why hadn’t they charged earlier?’ I soon understood why. The authorities wanted the public to see the devastation.”

While in Paris, Gökşin realized that a network was sorely needed for distribution of news photos, and he founded Sipa Press photo news agency in 1973 with American journalist Phyllis Springer. Encouraging young photographers and giving many their first chance, Gökşin created a generation of photojournalists.

“May 68, photographs by Gökşin Sipahioğlu,” is on view at Galerie Basia Embiricos and Photo 12 Galerie in Paris through May 25, 2018. It was curated by Ferit Duzyol in collaboration with Sipa Press.
