Need help with an error in LINQ expression that I use in MVC.net with C#.net code behind application

Last Modified: 2018-02-02
Hi Experts,
I am getting an error in LINQ expression that I use in MVC.net with C#.net code behind application.
It's complaining about how I am handling a null date value.
I need help resolving this error

Here is the error:

An exception of type 'System.NotSupportedException' occurred in EntityFramework.SqlServer.dll but was not handled in user code

Additional information: LINQ to Entities does not recognize the method 'System.DateTime Parse(System.String)' method, and this method cannot be translated into a store expression.

Here is my code:
            List<DataObject.HS> _lstTasks = new List<DataObject.HS>();
            using (CDO.CAEntities db = new CDO.CAEntities(new Security().getConnectionString(1), UserID, ID))
                _lstTasks = (from m in db.HS
                             select new DataObject.HS
                                 ID = (int)m.ID,
                                 IssueDescription = m.IssueDescription,
                                 ResolvedDate = m.ResolveDate == null ? DateTime.Parse("1/1/1900") : (DateTime)m.ResolveDate,
            return _lstTasks;
