Forestry Company Held in Contempt for Misconduct in SPLC Lawsuit

COLUMBIA, Tenn. — An Arkansas forestry company accused of cheating its foreign guestworkers out of their wages has been held in contempt of court for allowing supervisors to threaten workers and spread misinformation about a class action lawsuit filed on the workers' behalf by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

U.S. District Judge William J. Haynes Jr. ordered Superior Forestry Service Inc. to pay for television and radio announcements informing workers of their right to join the case without suffering any retaliation from their employer.
