A judge from Michigan, a mid-western state in the United States, has ordered a Michigan couple to pay over USD $30,000 dollars, or over 900 thousand baht to their son for tossing out his treasured porn collection. U.S. District Judge Paul Maloney’s decision earlier this week comes 8 months after 43 year old David Werking won a lawsuit against his parents.

The judge says the parents had no right to get rid of David’s extensive collection of pornographic materials that included over 1,600 films and magazines. It is reported that David, and his porn collection, lived at his parent’s house for nearly a year following his divorce. He subsequently moved to Muncie, Indiana.

The porn collection had been valued at USD $ 30,441 by an expert, says MLive.com. David’s parents have also been ordered to pay their son’s USD $14,500 dollar attorney fees. The judge says the parents admitted to destroying their son’s porno property.

David says that when he moved to Indiana, he noticed his library of adult materials was gone.

“Frankly, David, I did you a big favour getting rid of all this stuff,” David’s unrepentant father said. The police inspected the material and determined that the collection did not contain any child pornography, says The Holland Sentinel. It was not clear how they managed to view material that the parents said they destroyed. The titles and or genres of the films were not mentioned by US media.
