US Judge Rules Parents Owe Son for Destroying his Porn Collection

An American judge in the US state of Michigan has ruled that a 42-year-old man can seek compensation from his parents for destroying his pornography collection.

David Werking, 42, sued his mom and dad, Beth and Paul, for tossing the steamy stash — which he claims was worth $25,000 —  while he was living with them in Grand Haven in 2016, according to court papers filed this week.

District Judge Paul Maloney said “there is no question that the destroyed property was David’s property”, adding that his parents “repeatedly admitted that they destroyed the property”.

The judge noted that the parents did not cite a statute or law that supported their claim that, as landlords, they could “destroy property that they dislike”.

Mr. Werking said he had left his extensive and “irreplaceable” collection of magazines and films at his parent’s house when initially moving out, and later discovered they were missing,

Mr. Werking filed the lawsuit arguing the items were illegally destroyed in April 2019.

Emails between Mr. Werking and his father stated that the items included 12 full boxes of “pornography plus two boxes of sex toys”. Mr. Werking said there were over 1,600 DVDs and tapes.

In one, Mr. Werking’s father told him he did him a “big favor by getting rid of all this stuff”.

The parents said they were not willing to help move the items to Indiana where Werking now lives and did not want them in their home.

Following the verdict, an attorney for the parents said she was working to determine the damages and had hired an expert from the Erotic Heritage Museum in Nevada to help with the process.

The Werkings must outline the damages to the court by mid-February.
