BRATTLEBORO, Vt. — While several of the claims filed by former Brattleboro Police officer Terrance Parker against the town were dismissed on Tuesday, a Windham County District Court judge allowed his suit to go forward on a claim that he was fired without regard of his disability.

Parker has claimed he suffers from post traumatic stress disorder and depression as a result of having to shoot and kill Robert Woodward during a confrontation at All Souls Church in December 2001.
