Couple in Michigan ordered to pay their son $30,441 for destroying his pornography collection

A Michigan couple has been ordered by a judge to pay their son after they got rid of his pornography collection. In total, the parents owe him $30,441.

David Werking, 43, won the lawsuit against his parents in December of 2020. U.S. District Judge Paul Maloney ruled eight months later that his parents must pay him back for destroying his property. “There is no question that the destroyed property was David’s property,” Judge Maloney said Monday. “Defendants repeatedly admitted that they destroyed the property.”

About eight months ago, Werking, 45 filed a lawsuit against his parents claiming that they had no right to throw away his collection that included “films, magazines, and other items.” The incident took place when Werking lived with his parents for 10 months in Grand Haven before moving out to Muncie, Indiana.

As per a report by AP, David’s father “got rid of” the “stuff” after he moved out of his parent’s home. According to emails between Werking and his father, the collection included 1,605 individuals titles of DVDs and VHS tapes, AP reported citing a Holland Sentinel report. The disposed of belongings were worth $29,000, David claimed.

As per reports, Werking’s parents trashed his pornographic belongings since they were uncomfortable with transporting them or having those in their home. David realised his property was missing after he moved to Indiana.
