DALLAS (AP) - The owner of an Ohio bridal shop that went out of business after an Ebola scare has sued a Texas hospital, saying it failed to train and prevent a nurse from contracting the virus from a hospital patient.

The nurse, Amber Vinson, visited the shop in 2014 and tried on a wedding dress. She was diagnosed with Ebola when she returned to Texas. The shop, Coming Attractions Bridal & Formal in Akron, closed several weeks that fall then for good in early 2015.

WFAA-TV in Dallas reports (https://bit.ly/2dfgorU ) shop owner Anna Younker sued Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas on Tuesday. Younker accuses the hospital of negligence regarding Vinson’s training.

Officials with hospital owner Texas Health Resources said Wednesday they see no factual or legal basis for the complaint.
