Doctor claims Princeton hospital pushed her out for political views

A former Princeton doctor is suing the city of Princeton and a local hospital, claiming that hospital officials falsified records and forced her out for her political views in 2017.

Dr. Lori Tucker said officials with Princeton Community Hospital Association Inc. falsified records amid an investigation and peer review after they prevented her from performing a medically necessary abortion and she advocated for certain treatments for pregnant women suffering from substance abuse, according to a lawsuit she filed in U.S. District Court Thursday.

Tucker, an OB-GYN, alleges that hospital and city officials violated her rights to freedom of speech and due process during a peer review in 2017.

Princeton Community Hospital and Tucker have political connections to members of the West Virginia House of Delegates, but those connections are not stated in the lawsuit.
