Southwest Michigan economic development organization sued for discrimination

KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- The southwest Michigan economic development organization Cornerstone Alliance is being sued for discrimination in federal court.

Former employee Reyna Price alleges Cornerstone officials violated the Americans With Disabilities Act when she was fired in September 2013. Her lawsuit argues that before the current CEO and president was hired in 2013, there were no issues with her having to leave work suddenly to care for her daughter, who has a severe form of epilepsy.

Price accuses Cornerstone Alliance officials of making unprofessional and provocative comments the day she was fired.
