Man Sues Parents for Throwing Away His Porn Collection

Does a parent have a right to prevent a son from bringing unholy materials into the home? That’s up for debate in Michigan, where an unnamed adult son, who moved back into his parents’ Grand Haven, Mich., home in October 2016 after going through a divorce, is suing his parents for more than $86,000 for throwing out his estimated $29,000 porn collection.

The son stayed at his parents’ place for 10 months, doing housework in lieu of rent before being asked to leave in August 2017 due to a domestic situation. The son only discovered his stash was missing after his parents traveled to his new home in Indiana to drop off his possessions minus a dozen boxes of porn-related material, which the parents had destroyed.

The son reportedly wrote in an email to his parents, “If you had a problem with my belongings, you should have stated that at the time and I would have gone elsewhere. Instead, you choose to keep quiet and behave vindictively.” According to court documents, the father responded, “Believe it or not, one reason for why I destroyed your porn was for your own mental and emotional health. I would have done the same if I had found a kilo of crack cocaine. Someday, I hope you will understand.”

Though the son complained to police multiple times, authorities declined to press criminal charges. All parties in the civil suit remain unnamed.
