The adage, train up a child in the way he should and when he grows up he will not depart from it, appears not to have worked for an American couple.
Angry, the Son sued his parents for getting rid of his pornography collection and also sought compensation.Now a U.S. District Judge Paul Maloney has ruled in favor of David Werking, saying his parents had no right to throw out his collection.
Werking said boxes of films and magazines worth an estimated $29,000 were missing.
“There is no question that the destroyed property was David’s property,” Maloney said. “Defendants repeatedly admitted that they destroyed the property.”
Maloney told both sides to file briefs on the financial value of the collection.
“The court does not intend to hold an evidentiary hearing,” he said.
