CHARLESTON — A black woman is suing Specialty Select Hospital-Charleston and others, citing alleged discrimination, retaliation and constructive eviction.
Tasha Baldwin filed a complaint in Kanawha Circuit Court against the defendants alleging that they violated the West Virginia Human Rights Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she suffered lost wages and benefits, pain and suffering, and damage to personal dignity and reputation. The plaintiff holds Select Specialty and Charles Stephens responsible because the defendants allegedly discriminated against on the basis of her race and retaliated against her by constructively terminating her for complaining about discrimination.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendants in an amount that will fully compensate her for her damages, costs, attorney's fees and such other appropriate relief. She is represented by L. Dante diTrapano and Benjamin D. Adams of The Calwell Practice LC in Charleston and Lia diTrapano Fairless of diTrapano Law Firm PC in Charleston.
