MARSHALL – An East Texas woman asserts age was a factor in her termination from a bank.

In a lawsuit filed against Texas Bank and Trust in Marshall federal court on Jan. 22, Crystal Hardy claims the bank’s CAO told her that the firing was part of a “different leadership direction” the defendant sought to take.

“She was terminated due to her age and/or sex, and not for any legitimate, work related reason,” the suit says.

Hardy, who is in her early 60’s, worked for TBT for 22 years. She was a bank card manager at the time of the termination.

The original petition accuses TBT of terminating a substantial number of female employees over 40 years old, insisting Hardy’s record had no write-ups.

The defendant reportedly replaced her with a man in his late 30’s.

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

Kerry V. O’Brien of the O’Brien Law Firm in Austin is representing the complainant.
