group of biologists contracted to perform environmental studies for the border fence has filed a lawsuit against their employer.
Martin Wise and a group of other biologists filed a fair labor lawsuit at the federal courthouse in Brownsville this week.
The group claims that the Colorado-based company Engineering-Environmental Management never paid them for the overtime they worked in Cameron and Hidalgo Counties.
Attorneys for Wise and the others said their clients worked performing environmental assessments for the border fence.
Officials from the Engineering-Environmental Management could not immediately be reached for comment.
