SHERMAN – A teacher alleges she was discriminated against and discharged because of her disabilities.

Andrea Houser filed a complaint on April 6 in the Sherman Division of the Eastern District of Texas against Castle Montessori Schools Inc. alleging violation of the Texas Commission on Human Rights Act.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff was employed by the defendant for eight years as a teacher. She alleges she has medical restrictions due to lupus and diabetes that restricts her ability to lift, sit and stand for long periods of time and that the restrictions have been in place since 2015.

She alleges that in July 2017, she was terminated by the defendant without any reasonable accommodation or option.

The plaintiff holds Castle Montessori Schools Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to accommodate her disabilities or even engage in the interactive process and discriminated against her and discharged her because of her disability.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks actual, compensatory and punitive damages, pre- and post-judgment interest, attorneys’ fees, costs and such other lawful and equitable relief. She is represented by Robert (Bobby) Lee, Meagan Whitley and Megan Dixon of Lee & Braziel LLP in Dallas.
