MARSHALL – An African-American woman alleges that she was denied job positions because of her race.
Tena K. McCoo filed a complaint on May 6 in the Marshall Division of the Eastern District of Texas against Titus Regional Medical Center Auxiliary Inc.
citing alleged discrimination and retaliation.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that between May 2013 and December 2013, she was denied transfer to a more suitable
position because of her race.
