Veterinarian wins 14-year old discrimination case against Government

Bermuda NEWS02: "A Bermudian vet has won a court battle to have human rights commissioners hear her 14-year-old discrimination case against Government.

Dr Susann Smith claims she’s been unfairly blocked from gaining a license to practise on the Island. She became the first black Bermudian woman to qualify as a vet when she gained her doctorate of veterinary medicine from Alabama’s Tuskegee University.

However, she claims she’s been discriminated against for going to Jamaica to gain further qualification to practise rather than passing American or European exams.
