And that would be so different from what's happening now, how? If you do call, be sure to call when he is on one of his rants, let the operator hear him ranting. Yelling, at times, is enough to be considered a breach of the peace. I would suggest you speak with the local police and see what their take is on the issue. They will let you know what they would accept and where they would act. This relationship, with the police, may be just the thing you need to back this guy off.

Nothing is worse than having to take care of business for not only your family but for other family members. I guess that's the price of living with your folks for the time being. I agree with my colleague, however, I would talk to my parents about getting an injunction against him (I realize that you are not an attorney and hence cannot give legal advice beyond a certain signpost, etc.). However, it is certainly not an issue to see what your legal options are by speaking with an attorney. Good luck!

Please be advised that any answers or information disseminated above do not constitute legal advice and that the attorney responsible for this posting is merely attempting to participate in a Q & A session intended to be helpful but certainly not intended to be legal advice. It is important that you understand that no attorney-client relationship has been formed and that the attorney has no obligation to follow up with you with your legal issue unless you separately contact said attorney and arrange for him to legally represent you.
I agree with Mr. Rosenfelt that this is an issue that your parents will need to address first. They need to ask him to leave and if he refuses, you need to seek eviction through the legal process. Best of luck.
