Americans with Disabilities Act

DOVER, Del. (AP) - Attorneys for Delaware’s Board of Parole are asking a federal judge to rule in their favor in a lawsuit filed by a convicted killer.

Board attorneys filed a motion for summary judgment this week in a lawsuit brought by Steven A. White in 2011.

According to court papers, White was high on drugs when he fatally stabbed his aunt and uncle in 1977 in order to steal prescription drugs. White claims he was denied parole in 2009 because of his substance abuse history, in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
