Anyone who has $29,000 in a porn collection has some serious problems. His parents were right, this guy needs serious help. An occasional magazine or movie is one thing, but $29K in porn !

Suing your parents is disgusting. Being addicted to porn/sex is disgusting. Put them both together and you have a downward spiral into the abyss.

It certainly seems they weren't required to mail this to him - but to destroy his property against his will and without informing him is a different thing.
Especially if it turns out this property really rose to the level of felony property destruction.

This isn't the same as pouring a 40 dollar bottle of gin down the sink when you have a family member who is an alcoholic. This is MUCH more property.

Man, I did sure love that business law class with the civil law component. ;D
Reasonable care for how long though? I wish the article stated how long he left his belongings with his parents (and why they brought belongings TO him rather than him retrieving them himself). I mean he moves back home bringing items he was told specifically not to bring, and then gets kicked out after a domestic 'incident' and his parents wind up taking his stuff to him.
It doesn't sound like he was too concerned about his belongings until he found out they were destroyed.
So much more information needed, like did his parents make repeated requests for him to remove the porn from their home, or ask him to take it out of their home after he was kicked out? Did he make any effort at all to get his 'valuable collection' or was he planning on using the parents as a free storage facility for an undetermined length of time?

Talk about burning your bridges. This is a guy who needs to move home to mommy's basement every now and again.



How likely are they going to be to let him move back home the next time after he has sued them? Or include him in the will, for that matter.

I agree, the article is skimpy with details, that will certainly be required in court.

The son is probably going to be disinherited no matter the outcome, so yeah, a pretty stupid lawsuit. He shouldn't have been so f'g cheap and put them into a storage locker.

Those poor parents. They tried to help their horrible son by letting him move back home for free (household chores my tuchis), plus they told him not to bring porn into their home. He does, and then he expects them to caretake it and deliver it to him? How were they to know that none of the porn contained images of people under 18, and was a felony to receive, deliver, or possess?
