Akron bridal shop told to refund money to Ebola patient's bridesmaids

Akron bridal shop told to refund money to Ebola patient's bridesmaids

(Akron) -- Former Ebola patient Amber Vinson isn't apologizing for the inconvenience she caused an Akron bridal shop; she's demanding a refund.

"Coming Attractions" owner Anna Younker received a letter from Vinson's lawyer requesting nearly 500 dollars be returned to her bridesmaids, who either paid in full or put deposits down on their gowns.

The letter says, "In order to minimize additional public scrutiny, Amber has decided that it would be best if she used another bridal shop for her bridesmaids' dresses, and kept it strictly confidential."

Vinson visited the bridal shop just days before she was diagnosed with the deadly disease. Younker had to shut down her shop for three weeks and lost thousands of dollars to decontaminate the building.

Younker says she will not refund the money.
