A Michigan porn collector has won a lawsuit against his parents who threw out his assortment of porn and various sex toys, Dailystar reported.

David Werking, 42, filed a lawsuit against his parents, Beth and Paul, for throwing out his ‘trove of porn’ in 2016 when he was living with them in Grand Haven. He told the court the stuffs were worth $29,000 in total, according to the report.

U.S. District Judge Paul Maloney ruled on December 10 that the Michigan couple must pay their son a yet-to-be-determined amount to replace the “trove of pornography” and “array of sex toys.”

The couple told court in defense, that they warned their son not to bring with him any of his X-rated possessions when he moved in after a divorce in late 2016.

“This defense fails on both the facts and on the law. Plaintiff is entitled to summary judgment,” Judge Paul Maloney told the couple.

David’s dad reportedly told him via email: “Frankly, David, I did you a big favor getting rid of all this stuff.”

“You don’t have to take someone else’s stuff, and I would like it back, along with the sex toys… [and] 1 long container of smutty magazines,” David replied to his dad.

David’s lawyer Miles Greengard said: “This was a collection of often irreplaceable items and property,” mlive.com reports.

Judge Maloney wrote in the judgement: “In this case, 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.”

David and his parents now have until mid-February to file written submissions outlining damages.
