CORTLAND — Seymour-based Rose Acre Farms Inc. will fight a discrimination lawsuit filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court at Indianapolis.
The Justice Department is suing the egg producer to stop alleged discrimination against non-U.S. citizens in its hiring, The Associated Press said Tuesday evening.
“We obviously are disappointed that that is the step the government decided to take,” Rose Acre Chief Operating Officer Tony Wesner told The Tribune on Tuesday night. “We knew it was possible because we did not give in and pay a fine for something we don’t think we’re guilty of.”
