Settlement reached in firing of PVH physician's assistant

A settlement has been reached in a wrongful termination suit filed by a former physician's assistant who alleged the wife of the doctor for whom she was working ordered her fired on suspicions they were having an affair.

Dec. 9 was the scheduled date for trial in the case of Dr. Anita Petitte v. Robert L. Lewis and Cindy Lewis in Mason Circuit Court. However, trial was averted when on Aug. 12 a settlement was reached.

The terms of the settlement were not disclosed in court records, and W. Jesse Forbes, Petitte's attorney, and Eric Kinder, with the Charleston law firm of Spilman, Thomas and Battle, attorney for Pleasant Valley Hospital, declined to comment. PVH was named as a co-defendant in the suit.
