The 30-year-old being evicted from his parents’ home is exactly how you thought he’d be

Well, not exactly. He describes himself towards the end of the clip here as a “very conservative person.”

I’m going to guess he’s “very conservative” the way Ron Paul is “very conservative.”

The whole country’s having fun shooting spitballs at him, me included, but after watching this interview and reading further about him I’m leery of the possibility that there’s more going on here than just a severe case of slackeritis. He seems a bit disjointed in the clip. Ed noted in his post this morning that his parents demanded that he get “sessions with a therapist.” He recently lost his visitation rights to his child for unknown reasons. Business Insider tried to squeeze him for basic details about his life but that interview was weird too:

“I’ve been a father for the past few years,” Rotondo said. “That’s what I’ve been doing. I really haven’t been pursuing a career.”…

“That’s why I’m not the CEO of a big company,” Rotondo said about his responsibility as a parent. “That’s why I’m living with my parents still.”

Syracuse.com reported that after the ruling, Rotondo mentioned a business he had to support himself but refused to go into detail, saying “my business is my business.”

He also refused to discuss his work history with Business Insider besides saying he had done “unskilled labor” in the past, but not “physical labor.” He said he did not have a college degree.

Think of the mindset you’d need to have to make a public spectacle of yourself by fighting legal eviction from your parents’ home as a 30-year-old, then doing a bunch of interviews to badmouth them. Basic self-awareness as to how people would look at you would steer you away from that. Rotondo appears to lack that self-awareness. Is he lazy and unambitious or is there another explanation?

Exit question: Is it true, as Brooke Baldwin claims near the end, that the public views Millennials as “so entitled”? Goofing on them is fun but what supposedly makes Millennials more entitled than the garbage generation you and I know as Boomers? Millennials have had their career prospects damaged by the financial crisis, with all sorts of bad knock-on effects (some of which may resonate with Rotondo), and they’ve had their retirement prospects cannibalized by greedy elders who won’t let go of their federal entitlements no matter what it means for the country’s future. If ever you’re forced to choose between Millennials and Boomers, take the Millennials every time.

Noah’s Law advocates to start new effort to push for interlocks

WASHINGTON — The advocates who helped push through Noah’s Law in 2016 worry the law isn’t being enforced to its full extent, calling it a danger to the community and to someone who is caught driving drunk.

To honor the legacy of fallen Montgomery County Police Officer Noah Leotta, his father Rich said they are preparing for their next endeavor.

“Myself and a group of others are building a coalition to effectively change that behavior of your judges,” Leotta said. “It’s called Noah’s on Patrol. We’re looking at Montgomery County first because Montgomery County is obviously where he was working at the time and where he was a police officer.”

Leotta hopes to announce the campaign before the start of summer.

“Noah’s Law is not being used as the tool that it was supposed to be used for,” he said. “Making sure Noah’s Law went into place is just one part of the aspect to make sure Noah’s On Patrol. That’s my sound legacy.”

Leotta said he is already started sitting in courtrooms when judges begin hearing cases and handing out sentences related to drunken driving arrests.

He hopes the coalition will become a visible enough presence that judges will know they’re being watched and expected to require interlocks as part of a sentence.

“We’re looking at judicial consequences, where our judges instead of just giving a slap on the wrist with no consequences for a PBJ [probation before judgment],” Leotta said. “That they at least assign an interlock.”

Defense lawyers point out that in several cases, someone caught drunken driving will already have an interlock assigned to their car upon their arrest, even before they show up in court.

However in many cases that requirement can run out within six months to a year.

Leotta said he isn’t demanding judges throw the book at every one who shows up in court, but he argues they should be included in someone’s probationary sentence.

“With leniency, you can still protect the victims and community,” Leotta argued. “By ensuring that as an aspect of a PBJ that you have an interlock.”

“Look we don’t want people to go to jail, we understand that. And for a first or second offense and they haven’t hurt anybody … what we’re trying to do is change their behavior so they don’t do it again.”

BALTIMORE (AP) — A Baltimore man has been sentenced to 27 years in prison for a carjacking and high-speed chase that ended with him plowing into a security gate at Fort Meade in 2015.

The Baltimore Sun reports that Dontae Small was sentenced Tuesday in an incident that briefly closed the National Security Agency to non-essential personnel and resulted in an overnight search of the agency’s grounds. A federal judge also sentenced Small to two additional years for aggravated identity theft committed while he was in jail awaiting trial.

Authorities said that after crashing into a gate at the NSA at Fort Meade, he hid overnight in a storm drain before being found and arrested.

The NSA is a major tenant at Fort Meade, an Army installation housing the U.S. Cyber Command.

New Tax Law Eliminates Alimony Deduction

Khadilkar Law PLLC

February 8, 2018

For divorce couples, alimony was a deduction that the payor could deduct from his/her taxes. However, with the new tax bill, starting in 2019, the alimony will no longer side the eu deductible.

The result of this change may make spouses reluctant to pay, and will hurt those spouses who depended on the income of the wage earning spouse. Another side effect will be timing – one side may want to rush the divorce before 2019 and the other side may want to delay.

New Surrogacy Law in DC

June 25, 2017

In April, a new law for surrogacy became law in the District of Columbia.

Prior to the passing of this new law, all parties to surrogacy agreements were subject to a fine up to $10,000 and a one year prison term. This ban had been in place for 25 years, and D.C. was the only jurisdiction making surrogacy a criminal offense.

Opponents of surrogacy argue that the practice is unnatural and exploits women.  Concerns in some western European countries have made compensation for surrogacy illegal. Supporters of surrogacy say that it represents a rare chance for to make families for some people.

The new D.C. law streamlines the process for would be parents, and allows them to be named on the birth certificate, so they can avoid filing for adoption after the birth. The law applies to any would-be parent, regardless of sexual orientation and biological relation.

Kids Staying in House After Separation or Divorce

Khadilkar Law PLLC



May 30, 2017

I have heard of a few people already doing this.  I thought it was an interesting idea – the kids stay in the home, while the parents move in/out based on the custody arrangement.

I wonder if more families will start looking into this option. Interesting article from the New York Times.

Kentucky Judge Recuses Himself from Adoption Case

Khadilkar Law PLLC



May 15, 2017

A judge in Kentucky has said he will recuse himself from adoption cases involving homosexual parties.  The judge stated that he will be doing so “as a matter of conscience” because he feels that under no circumstances would it serve the best interest of a child to be adopted by a same sex couple.

But does this violate ethics rules? Isn’t a judge sworn to uphold the laws of the land? If he cannot do so, how is he honoring his oath?  Interesting development in Kentucky – we will have to see how this plays out.

Parental Rights for Rapists?

May 12, 2016

Rape victims who have gotten pregnant have had the heart wrenching decision to decide whether to seek an abortion or to have the child.  If a rape victim decides to have the baby, in some states, she may have to fight with the rapist for custody.

Last year, President Obama signed into law the Rape Survivor Child Custody Act.  This law provides grants to states that allow women to petition for termination of parental rights based on clear and convincing evidence that the child was conceived through rape.

Many states have laws that restrict or completely terminate parental rights of rapists.  According to Virginia Code 63.2-1233(6), consent of the rapist is not required in an adoption case, where parental rights are terminated. However, if the mother wishes to keep the child, the rapist has options to seek other parental rights.

In the District of Columbia, there are no restrictions of the parental rights of rapists.  In Maryland, the state Senate just rejected a bill that would terminate the parental rights of rapists.  The resistance stems from the right to have and raise a family, grounded in the Due Process Clause.

So generally in this region, women who choose to give birth to a child conceived from rape will be tied to the rapist forever.  What should be the law?
