Milton, DE

Delmarva, DE: (Apr-20-07) Lewes Police Detective John Miller filed charges against the Town of Milton, claiming he was passed over for a promotion to become chief of police because he is black. The racial discrimination suit was affirmed after a witness testified during a June 2005 civil trial in Wilmington, that Milton's previous mayor, Jack Bushey, used a racial slur while stating that Miller would never become chief. Bushey decided not to seek re-election during Milton's 2006 political race. The legal battle, which has dragged on since 2002, ended when both parties agreed to a settlement agreement which awarded Miller $83,750. No admission of liability on behalf of the Town of Milton or any of the named parties was made. [DAILY TIMES: RACIAL SLUR]
