A 40-year-old man in Michigan has now filed a lawsuit against his parents for allegedly trashing his large collection of porn, according to ABC News.

 

"A Michigan man is seeking more than $86,000 from his parents in civil court for allegedly throwing out his large pornography collection," reports the outlet. "The names of the son and his parents were withheld by WXMI, which obtained the federal civil court documents on Friday."

The man moved back in with his parents in October 2016 after going through a divorce, bringing with him a collection of pornography that he told courts amounted to $29,000. When he moved into his own place in Indiana one year later, the man alleges that his parents delivered his belongings sans porn collection, which they confessed to having destroyed. The "collection" (if that's the right word) apparently was enough to fill 12 moving boxes, plus another two for his sex toys.

According to People, "inside the boxes were films such as Lesbians in Tight Shorts, University Co-Eds 25, and 1001 Erotic Nights, according to a list provided by the man in the lawsuit."

In an email exchange with his father at the time, the man accused his parents of acting "vindictively" instead of being upfront about their displeasure.

"If you had a problem with my belongings, you should have stated that at the time and I would have gone elsewhere," the email allegedly read, according to court documents. "Instead, you choose to keep quiet and behave vindictively."

In his response, the father allegedly said he destroyed the items out of love, comparing the smut stash to a kilo of cocaine. He also admitted to destroying his sex toys.

 

"I don’t think that you have been listening to me, so let me make this very clear. I do not possess your pornography," the father said. "It is gone. It has been either destroyed or disposed of. I may well have missed a few items that are now in your possession but, at this point, if you don’t have it, it is gone. Ditto for your sex toys and smutty magazines."

"We counted twelve moving boxes full of pornography plus two boxes of ‘sex toys’ as you call them," he added. "We began that day the process of destroying them and it took quite a while to do so. 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."

After learning that his parents destroyed his precious porn, the man then pressed charges against them with Ottawa County Sheriff's Office. Subsequently, prosecutors decided not to pursue the case.

Though different in kind, the case recalls a story from 2018 in which parents sued their 30-year-old son for refusing to move out of their home. Amanda Prestigiacomo reported at the time:

 

A married couple from New York State is taking their free-loading, 30-year-old millennial son to court for refusing to leave their home.

Christina and Mark Rotondo say they have been trying to get their son Michael to move out for months now. According to WSTM, Christina and Mark gave their son a number of written warnings that went ignored.

On February 2, for example, the couple informed Mark that he must leave their residence within 14 days. When he remained, squatting in their home some two weeks later, the parents issued him a note declaring him "hereby evicted," giving him until March 15 to get the heck out. When that, too, was ignored, the parents issued yet another note, which said in part, "we have seen no indication that you are preparing to leave."

Unsuccessful, they turned to a different approach: suing him.
