In Grand Rapids, Michigan, an unidentified man, age 40 is suing his parents for $87,000 for dumping his porn collection. Apparently he had been living with his folks following a divorce but recently moved into his own home. When his folks delivered his stuff to the new digs, his 12 boxes of porn magazines and films were nowhere to be found. He called the cops but the Ottawa County prosecutor would not pursue charges.
In an email filed as evidence in the suit, the man's father wrote: "I did you a big favor by getting rid of all this stuff."
According to the Associated Press, the porn has an estimated value of $29,000 but "the man is seeking triple financial damages."
