HOUSTON – A carpenter alleges his epilepsy was the reason he was terminated from Star Cooling Towers, L.P.

In a lawsuit filed on Dec. 22 in the Harris County 125th District Court, Henry P. Aguilera states that the company knew about his medical condition but thought nothing of it. Aguilera’s supervisor, however, was not aware and began to prevent the plaintiff from working when he found out, the suit says.

Aguilera adds he did not work for a day only to be fired upon his return to duty.

Another supervisor reportedly told the complainant that the epilepsy made him “a liability.”

Consequently, Aguilera seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.

He is represented by attorney David C. Holmes of the Law Offices of David C. Holmes in Houston.
