GRAND HAVEN, Mich. — A federal judge has ordered a western Michigan couple to pay their son $30,441 for getting rid of his pornography collection.

U.S. District Judge Paul Maloney’s decision came eight months after David Werking, 43, won a lawsuit against his parents in which he said they had no right to throw out his collection of films, magazines and other items.

Werking had lived at their Grand Haven home for 10 months after a divorce before moving to Muncie, Ind.

The judge followed the value set by an expert.

Werking’s parents also must pay $14,500 to their son’s lawyer.

After moving to Indiana, Werking learned that his collection had been thrown out.

“Frankly, David, I did you a big favor getting rid of all this stuff,” his father said in an email.
