Man sues parents for getting rid of his vast porn collection; seeking $87,000

MICHIGAN -

A man from Indiana is suing his parents for getting rid of his vast pornography collection, which he estimates is worth $29,000.

The 40-year-old man last week filed a lawsuit in federal court in Michigan, where he moved in with his parents in 2016 following a divorce.

He says when he moved out 10 months later, they delivered his things to his new home in Muncie, Indiana, but his 12 boxes of pornographic films and magazines were missing.

His parents admit they dumped the porn, which included titles such as "Frisky Business" and "Big Bad Grannys."

The man filed a complaint with police, but the Ottawa County prosecutor declined to press charges.

The lawsuit includes an email excerpt from the man's father, who told his son, "I did you a big favor by getting rid of all this stuff."

The man is seeking triple financial damages of roughly $87,000.
