Mr. Werking had lived with his parents in Grand Haven, Michigan, for 10 months after his divorce, but moved out in August 2017. He now lives in Indiana.
He said he had left his extensive and “irreplaceable” collection of magazines and films at his parents’ house when initially moving out, and later discovered they were missing, the Holland Sentinel newspaper reported.
The parents said they were not willing to help move the items to Indiana and did not want them in their home.
Mr. Werking filed the lawsuit arguing the items were illegally destroyed in April 2019.
What we know so far
Emails between Mr. David Werking and his father stated that the items included 12 full boxes of “pornography plus two boxes of sex toys”, according to the Sentinel. Mr. Werking said there were over 1,600 DVDs and tapes.
In one, Mr. Werking’s father told him he did him a “big favor by getting rid of all this stuff”.
