Judge Dismisses Lawsuits by Accused Cop Killer

DOVER, Del. (AP/WBOC)- A federal judge has dismissed lawsuits filed by a Wilmington man who is charged with fatally stabbing a New Castle County police officer and has complained about his treatment in prison.

Judge Sue Robinson this week dismissed the lawsuits filed by David Salasky II as frivolous. She gave him 30 days to file amended complaints.

Salasky claimed that he was denied proper medical treatment and that his prison grievances were not properly processed. He also challenged his inmate classification, saying he is being punished because of the nature of his charges.

Salasky is charged with first-degree murder in the killing of 44-year-old Sgt. Joseph Szczerba in September 2011 after Szczerba and other officers responded to a report of a vehicle break-in in the Penn Acres community near New Castle.
