Parents ordered to pay son $30,441 for destroying son’s porn cache

A Michigan judge ordered a couple to pay $30,441 to their son for getting rid of his pornography collection.

US District Judge Paul Maloney’s decision came eight months after David Werking, 43, won a lawsuit against his parents.

He said they had no right to throw out his collection of films, magazines and other items. Werking had lived at their Grand Haven home for 10 months after a divorce before moving to Muncie, Indiana.




The judge followed the value set by an expert. Werking’s parents also must pay $14,500 to their son’s attorney.

After moving to Indiana, Werking learned that his possessions were missing. Werking’s parents said they had a right to act as his landlords.

“Defendants do not cite to any statute or caselaw to support their assertion that landlords can destroy property that they dislike,” the judge said in one of the hearings.
