HOUSTON — A professor is suing a branch of the University of Texas system, alleging unlawful employment practices.

Eva M. Sevick filed a lawsuit Sept. 16 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, alleging violation of Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

According to the complaint, Sevick was subjected to a hostile work environment, discrimination and retaliation. As a result of defendant's actions, the suit says, Sevick has suffered and will continue to suffer irreparable injury and monetary damages unless the court grants relief. 

The plaintiff alleges the defendant intentionally discriminated against her in the terms and conditions of her employment based on a perceived disability.

Sevick seeks trial by jury, compensatory damages, declaration that defendant's actions and practices violated Title VI and the ADAAA, an order permanently restraining the defendant from engaging in such unlawful employment practice, attorney fees, court costs and all other relief. She is represented by attorney Kala S. Dumont of Law Offices of Gaul & Dumont in San Antonio.
