TEXARKANA – A Bogata man alleges he was terminated from his job two days after suffering a stroke.

Brandon Haley filed a complaint on Jan. 25 in the Texarkana Division of the Eastern District of Texas against Tiger Trailers Inc. citing the Americans with Disabilities Act.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff began his employment with the defendant in July 2015. The suit states on Oct. 25, 2016, the plaintiff suffered a seizure and a minor stroke and needed him to take intermittent time off to accommodate his disability. Two days later, he alleges he was terminated because he had become disabled.
