This 42-year old man won a lawsuit against his parents for throwing away his $25,000 worth of porn collection. 

The Michigan judge has ruled in favor of David Werking, who was moved in with his parents after his divorce. As BBC reports, the man was told by his parents to not bring porn into their home and after they discarded his collection he sued them for destroying his items.

Michigan judge told David's parents that even as landlords they did not have the authority to discard his personal belongings. 

David who now lives in Indiana lived with his parents in Grand Haven, Michigan after his divorce and moved out in August 2017.

The Holland Sentinel newspaper reports that he left his extensive and "irreplaceable" collection of adult films and magazines at his parents' house at the time he was busy in his moving procedure and later he came to know that his parents had already thrown away his collection. 

David's parents made it clear that they did not want those items on their property and also were not willing to move those times to his place in Indiana.

Upset with his parents' actions, David filed a lawsuit in April 2019 claiming that his porn collection was disposed of without his awareness. 

As Sentinel reports, emails between David and his father showed that the collection destroyed included 12 full boxes of "pornography plus two boxes of sex toys" and over 1,600 DVDs and tapes.

His father told him in one email that he did him a "big favor by getting rid of all this stuff".

The Metro reports David's lawsuit explained: "Some of the property was pornographic in nature. None of the property was illegal in nature."

A federal judge agreed that the 42-year-old had not "abandoned his property" when he was in the process of moving out and therefore his parents had no right of destroying it.

 

David's parents after losing the court battle have now hired an expert from the Erotic Heritage Museum in Nevada to help them calculate the damages that they owe to their son as they have been given a deadline of mid-February to present the exact cost of the damages to a court.
