Akron Bridal Shop Owner Sues Hospital

An Akron bridal shop that closed after a nurse visited the shop before she was diagnosed with Ebola is suing the Texas hospital where she worked.

The Dallas Morning News reports that the owners of Coming Attractions Bridal Shop sued Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas for over a million dollars.

She was caring for a patient with Ebola, and the suit says the hospital shouldn't have allowed Vinson and another nurse to have free contact with the outside after being exposed to the virus.

Vinson flew to Northeast Ohio after treating the patient, and the suit says she relied on the hospital's advice before shopping at the bridal shop.

Coming Attractions Bridal Shop Closing

The bridal shop that as at the center of the Ebola scare in the Akron area has decided to close its doors for good. Coming Attractions Bridal Shop is closing in May after not being able to recover from their financial loss following Amber Vinson's visit.

Coming Attractions employee Kayla Litz talked to WAKR's Jasen Sokol about the news.

"You know, people say 'Oh you got your dress from the Ebola store,'" Litz said. "It's a bad stigma that just hasn't seemed to go away."

Coming Attractions posted the news on their Facebook page Tuesday afternoon.

No word on whether or not Coming Attractions will move somewhere else for a fresh start.
