NORWALK, Calif. — The civil case brought by Edwina McCombs against a California motel claiming that it did not adequately protect her 8- and 9-year-old daughters from accessing porn on TV while she was taking a bath goes before Los Angeles Superior Court this week.

McCombs checked into the Value Lodge in Artesia, Calif., in August 2006, informing the person at the front desk that she was there with her two young daughters. After entering the room, she went to take a bath and her children turned on the TV to watch a children’s show, according to reports.

"Instead," her attorneys said, "the children were subjected to hardcore pornography with close-up images of people engaged in various homosexual sexual acts."

McCombs’ attorneys have said they will prove that the motel does not block its adult channels, does not post any warning signs, does not provide a list of channels to its guests and does not provide any restrictions at all against children accessing free adult material.

“Value Lodge was negligent in failing to use preventative measures to restrict a child from accessing adult TV channels," one of the attorneys said. "As a result of this negligence, this family has incurred great expense in obtaining appropriate psychological help for the McComb’s children."

The trial is expected to last five days.

The owner of the Value Lodge was not available for comment when XBIZ called.
