TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) — A federal lawsuit filed against an Idaho-based company contending it engaged in human trafficking has been put on hold while the U.S. Department of Homeland Security investigates. The Times-News reports that five Mexican men with work visas filed the lawsuit in April against Pure Forest LLC in U.S. District Court in the Eastern District of California. The lawsuit was put on hold for 120 days starting June 26 pending a criminal investigation by the federal agency. Jeff Wadsworth is named in the lawsuit as the company’s chief executive officer.

Owen Wadsworth is named as a member of Pure Forest. The company denies the allegations. Pure Forest, headquartered in Oakley, sells Christmas trees. It also offers tree thinning and pesticide spraying in California and Washington.
