A Michigan couple has been ordered to pay $45,000 for dumping their adult son’s extensive porn collection.

David Werking, 43, moved into his parents’ basement in Grand Haven in 2016 after a divorce. A few months later, he moved to Indiana and asked his parents to send him his belongings, MLive reported.

But the porn never showed up with the rest of his things: Paul and Beth Werking told their son they’d tossed his collection of porn and sex toys.

“Frankly, David, I did you a big favor getting rid of all this stuff,” Paul Werking wrote to his son in an email.

David sued. He won the case last December, as US District Judge Paul Maloney noted that “there is no question that the destroyed property was David’s property. Defendants repeatedly admitted that they destroyed the property, and they do not dispute that they destroyed the property.”

Maloney eventually valued the collection at $30,441.54, to be paid to David Werking, and ordered the Werkings to pay their son’s attorney $14,519.82. The judge denied the son’s request to triple the damages, as is allowed under Michigan law.
