OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- An Ogden doctor is suing a medical practice claiming they were bias.
Sandra Jill Althaus alleges a director of Mountain Medical Physicians Specialists told her that her partners had a bias against her. The director allegedly also told Althaus she was a "single non-Mormon female and would be happier elsewhere."
Althaus said she was fired in June of 2004 allegedly because of her "emotional distance and being critical of others' mistakes." However, in a federal lawsuit filed last week she claims her termination was based on discrimination.
Althaus is seeking reinstatement to her job and a minimum of 500-thousand dollars in damages from the medical group.
