2 more nurses sue for job loss in TB outbreak

Posted: Updated:

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) - Two more nurses fired after a tuberculosis outbreak at Ninety Six Primary School have sued the Department of Health and Environmental Control, claiming they were improperly fired.

The Herald-Journal of Spartanburg reported that Spartanburg attorney John Reckenbeil represents all three nurses who have sued DHEC.

Reckenbeil sued Thursday on behalf of Anne Ashley of Abbeville County and Latrina Richard of Laurens County, who were fired June 11.

Ashley had worked with DHEC almost 20 years. Richard had been a supervisor at the Greenwood County Health Department.

Earlier this month, Malinda Martin of Spartanburg sued, saying she was wrongly fired after the tuberculosis outbreak. She was fired May 30, nearly two months after a school employee tested positive for TB.

The agency says it will not talk about pending legislation.
