Sep 14th, 2021

Many of us have our collections. Some women love to collect designer clothes, bags, and shoes, while men choose to add high-end watches, shoes, branded clothes, and even gadgets, to their collection. But for this man, his prized collection is porn stuff – magazines, films, toys, and so on. So when his parents got rid of his collection, they all ended up in court.

Can you imagine suing your parents over porn? Well, that is exactly what happened to this man and his parents.

David Werking, 43, won the lawsuit against his parents in December of 2020. The judge ruled that David’s parents must pay him back for destroying his property. And that would cost them thousands of dollars.

Eight months after winning the lawsuit against his parents, U.S. District Judge Paul Maloney ruled that David Werking’s parents had no right to throw out his collection. So he has ordered them to pay him $30,441 for getting rid of his pornography collection!

Judge Maloney explained, “There is no question that the destroyed property was David’s property. Defendants repeatedly admitted that they destroyed the property.”

So how did all this happen? How come David’s parents gained possession of his prized collection?

You see, after David got divorced from his wife, he decided to move into his parent’s home and lived there for ten months. Then he moved again to Muncie, Indiana. When he requested for his things to be sent to his new address, he found out that his porn collection is missing.

As it turned out, while he’s away, his parents decided to get rid of his collection of pornographic films, magazines, and other items.

To be exact, reports say that the collection in question is a dozen boxes of porn and two boxes of sex toys. And this got him mad. His dad responded through an email. He wrote, “I do not possess your pornography. It is gone.

It has either been destroyed or disposed of. I may well have missed a few items that are now in your possession but, at this point, if you don’t have it, it is gone. Ditto for your sex toys and smutty magazines. ”

According to his dad, he did his son a favor. He added, “Frankly, David, I did you a big favor getting rid of all this stuff” for the sake of his mental and emotional health. According to the lawsuit, his father said disposing of the porn and sex toys “took quite a while.”

But for David, they had no right to throw out his prized collection. In response to the suit, his parents claimed that they had a right to act as his landlords. They were not comfortable with the porn items in their home, so they decided to get rid of them without consulting David.

But according to Judge Maloney, “Defendants do not cite to any statute or case law to support their assertion that landlords can destroy property that they dislike.”

According to an expert, all in all, the decided value of his collection was $29,000. The judge followed the value estimated by an expert. On top of that, his parents will also have to pay $14,500 to their son’s attorney.
