Almeida v. Bio-Medical Applications of Texas, Inc., 17-50916

Held that a healthcare firm did not violate the Texas Occupational Code when it fired two nurses after they refused to accept a particular assignment for which they said they lacked adequate training. Affirmed summary judgment for the healthcare firm, concluding that the nurses' refusal was not a but-for cause of their terminations.
