The high court on Monday refused to let the parents of Janet Chandler sue Wackenhut Corp., which in 1979 was hired to send security guards to Holland to provide security during a strike.
Chandler was a 23-year-old college student working at a hotel when she was kidnaped, raped and killed by Wackenhut guards, who then covered up her death. Six people were convicted of first- or second-degree murder; five of whom worked for Wackenhut.
But the federal courts have said Chandler's family cannot sue Wackenhut for her long-ago death. The high court refused to reconsider that ruling.
