(UNDATED) - 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 Rose Acres Farms, to stop alleged discrimination against non-U.S. citizens in its hiring. The complaint alleges the company required non-citizens to produce more, different or specific documents issued by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to verify their eligibility for work, while U.S. citizens were perĀ­mitted to present their choice of documents.

But Rose Acre Chief Operating Officer Tony Wesner says that didn't happen. He said the company employs many minorities, including a large percentage 45 percent of non-U.S. citizens.
