Once again insanity rules the legal system, this time in Italy.
I do belive I would go to jail before following this judges ruling.
What a load of crap. The judge wins my vote for :wally of the year !

Also, I find it odd that I am not more surprised by it.

Common sense is long dead, but now it seems they're digging up the corpse and mutilating it.

Maybe the judge figures that anyone who allows their parents to support them deserves exactly what they get?
Mom: I'm not buying you new underwear until you get a PROPER haircut.
Dad: Yeah! And if you can't abide by OUR rules and be in by 9:00 pm every night, then you don't need to live here.
Mom: Right! Now shut up and eat your squash!
Seriously, I think I'll move to Italy. Working for a living is really cutting into my fun time.

What I love is that the psychologist quoted is concerned about the effect this will have on the children!
Not sure I totally buy the story though.

It's funny how they deride the US for this type of stuff and then go and do the same thing. Look at this:Spain (http://www.americanmafia.com/Feature_Articles_49.html) : Madrid's prosecutor has decided that scantily dressed prostitutes who stroll in a popular Madrid park should not be ordered to cover up because they are simply wearing the uniform of their profession.
The prosecutor, Mariano Fernando Bermejo, rejected a proposal to charge prostitutes with the offense of indecent exposure after the idea was put forward by a police chief outraged at the women's state of undress day and night in the park.
The park, Casa de Campo, is a well-known center of prostitution but it also houses an amusement park, a zoo, soccer pitches and restaurants. Strolling families often come into contact with near naked men or women.

Well, that is a little strange, although it doesn't have much to do with my life. I might feel differently if I lived in Italy and had an unemployed kid, or if I was an unemployed kid.
If Dopers are going to get this worked up about it I expect to see an editorial column within the week saying it's all Bill Clinton's fault. In the alternative I expect a diatribe from ol' December decrying yet another case of judicial legislation. Those of you who are constituents of Italian Legislators might want to do something about this. Otherwise all the perceiving with dismay and pointing in alarm is not constructive or even amusing.

Hmmm. I'm thinking that a move to Spain or Italy might not be a bad thing. (Especially Spain!)

You cannot imagine how little it takes to amuse me :)

Well, given the history of the Italian government, next year's NEW government will probably change the ruling.

I suppose what gets me most is that this *kid* is in his 30's, has a law degree and a trust fund that equals out to around
$ 200,000 U.S. dollars. AND he has turned down several job offers.
My son moved out yesterday. He is 21, makes $ 6.50 an hour and has no trust fund. He has been paying rent here since he graduated and decided he wasn't going to go on to college.
There is no way in hell I would support him just because he couldn't find a job that is to his liking. If he likes his job great, if he doesn't like it I'm sorry, find a new one. But he will not be supported by Mom and Dad his whole life.
IMHO letting your kids live off you after they are grown is not helping them, after all you aren't going to be here forever.
