A Bayou Vista woman is suing Shriners Hospitals for Children, seeking between $100,000 and $200,000 in relief, asserting her employment was terminated because of her age and a recent surgery.

Houston-based attorney Jacques Leeds filed the lawsuit Jan. 9 on behalf of Mary Bernardy in the 122nd District Court against Shriner’s Hospital for Children Inc., asserting Bernardy was fired from her job as a registered nurse in June 2018 after working for the defendant for almost 17 years.
