Court orders parents to pay son $30,000 for the value of his porn collection they destroyed

A judge in Kalamazoo, Michigan ordered Beth and Paul Werking to pay $30,000 to their son David, 43, for dumping his "trove of pornography and an array of sex toys" after he moved out of their house. The fee was based on an estimate provided to the court by Victoria Hartmann, director of the Las Vegas Erotic Heritage Museum. The parents also must pay $15,000 to David's attorney. From MLive:

David Werking had moved in with his parents in late 2016 after a divorce. When he moved out, he expected his parents to send his belongings to Indiana. A dozen boxes of pornographic films and magazines never showed up.

In an email, his father wrote: "Frankly, David, I did you a big favor getting rid of all this stuff."
