A Michigan court has ordered parents to pay their son $ 30,441 for dumping his pornographic collection, according to the Guardian.
The ruling by District Court Judge Paul Maloney came eight months after David Verking, 43, won a lawsuit against his parents.
Verking said his parents dumped his vast collection of pornographic films, magazines and other items he claimed were worth $ 29,000.
The judge took into account the opinion of experts on the value of the collection. In addition, Verking’s parents must pay $ 14,000 to their son’s lawyer.
Verking lived in his parents’ house for ten months after the divorce, before moving to Munsey, Indiana. After moving, he discovered that he was missing boxes full of movies and magazines.
His father then wrote him a letter in which, among other things, he said: “Honestly, David, I did you a great favor when I freed you from all these things.”
In a verdict handed down last December, Judge Maloney said: “There is no doubt that the destroyed property belonged to David. The defendants kept repeating that they had indeed destroyed the property. ‘
The Verking family says that as owners of the house where David lived, they had every right to act as they did.
Maloni replied: “The defendants could not cite any law or case law to substantiate the claim that as owners they have the right to destroy property they do not like.”
