HOUSTON — A Houston woman’s suit against Wells Fargo, which alleged unlawful employment practices and discrimination, has been dismissed.
Maha Sheikh filed a lawsuit Dec. 28, 2016, in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Wells Fargo Bank NA and Wells Fargo Bank Texas NA, et al, alleging violation of Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
According to the complaint, on Dec. 11, 2015, Sheikh, an Indian-Pakistani who began working for Wells Fargo in 2012, was terminated from her employment, leading to lost wages and compensatory damages, including emotional distress.
Court records show that on Oct. 27 a final order of dismissal was entered in the case.
The plaintiff alleged Wells Fargo denied her reasonable accommodation and subjected her to racial and disability discrimination, harassment, retaliation and termination for engaging in a protected activity.
Sheikh sought compensatory and punitive damages, injunctive and affirmative relief, attorney fees and costs and all other equitable relief.
She was represented by attorney Bruce A. Coane of Coane and Associates PLLC in Houston.
