A teenager took his mother to court because she confiscated a cellphone when he refused to do study, according to court documents in Spain.

The 15-year-old boy of El Ejido, shocked people by filing a lawsuit against his mother, 37-year-old Maria Angustias, for taking away his cellphone privileges.

It was around 8:00 p.m., when Angustias noticed that her son was playing with his phone and did not study. She urged him to study, but he refused.

In response, she took away his phone.

The boy claimed that his mother was guilty of mistreatment for confiscating his phone. He demanded that the judge order his mother give him back the cellphone.

In a blow to the spoiled child, the judge sided with the mother, saying that she was well within her rights to discipline her son for refusing to study.

To the contrary, magistrate Luis Miguel Columna told the mother that she could have faced charges if she neglected her son and did not make sure that he studied.

It is not known who paid the boy’s legal fees.
