PHILADELPHIA — A former driver is suing Liberation House LLC, citing alleged disability discrimination and wrongful termination.
Purell Curbean filed a complaint Nov. 16 in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against the defendants, alleging they failed to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Oct. 2, 2017, he was terminated from his employment. He sustained great economic loss, loss of future earnings, emotional distress, humiliation and pain and suffering.
