Man seeks $87,000 in damages after his parents destroy massive porn collection, lawsuit says

An Indiana-based man is seeking $87,000 in damages after his parents from Grand Haven destroyed his large pornography collection, according to a lawsuit filed Wednesday in the Southern Division of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Michigan. 

An Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office Case Report from February 2018 included in the lawsuit says a deputy was dispatched to a report of destroyed property. The man told the deputy he was “kicked out” of his parent’s house in August 2017 after a domestic incident and noticed some of his items were missing when they delivered some of his stuff to his home in Indiana. 

He indicated to the deputy that he was told his parents destroyed his belongings and that all of the items “were all to do with pornographic material,” and the man said he wanted to press charges.

Supplemental reports included by the sheriff’s department said the man’s warrant was denied by the prosecutor because of lack of evidence. 

In an email exchange included in the lawsuit, the man’s father wrote to him saying:

“We counted twelve moving boxes full of pornography plus two boxes of ‘sex toys’ as you call them. We began that day the process of destroying them and it took quite a while to do so. … I did you a big favor by getting rid of all this stuff for you.”

Also included in the suit are lists compiled by the man of items he is missing.

Detailed are the names and estimated prices of over 400 VHS tapes, more than 1,600 DVDs (including multiple copies of some titles), 160-plus CDs, and 70 sex toys. 

In the list included in the lawsuit, the man alleges the items lost are valued at more than $28,000, and would cost a little over $40,000 to replace. He also is seeking damages.

The man is seeking more than double the estimated replacement figure he listed in documents included in the suit.
