Son sues parents for throwing out his porn collection... and wins

His parents felt it was an unhealthy addiction.

As parents, we all want to make sure our kids stay on the right track, and part of that is making sure they don't pick up habits that might be unhealthy for them.

One set of parents in that States decided to take matters into their own hand regarding what they called their son's 'addiction'.

So what was it? Substance abuse? Too many video games?

No, it was porn. And that's not all.

You see, their son is actually a fully grown adult and when they destroyed his porn collection, he sued them...and won.

43-year-old David Werking brought his parents to court after they threw out his extensive pornography collection.

Werking told the court that his parents had no right to throw out his films, magazines and other pornographic items.

He says that this occurred after he was temporarily living with his parents, after his divorce.

When Werking moved out of their home and into one of his own, he realised that some of his possessions were missing.

When he questioned his parents about the missing items, his father emailed him saying;

"Frankly, David, I did you a big favor getting rid of all this stuff."

U.S. District Judge Paul Maloney ruled in favour of Werking and said that his parents had no right to throw away any of their son's possessions without his permission.

The couple were ordered to pay $30,441 to their son. Werking’s parents must also pay $14,500 to their son’s attorney.
