FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A federal judge has certified class action status for a lawsuit against a North Dakota-based custom-harvesting operation.

The complaint was filed in 2010 against Altendorf Harvesting in Minto by two brothers from South Africa, Peter and Andrew Murray. The Murrays say the company owes unpaid wages to them and dozens of other employees from other countries.

The class includes all nonsupervisory workers employed by the company under temporary work visas since Oct. 28, 2004. Trial is set for Sept. 22 in Fargo.

Defense attorneys in the case could not be reached for comment.
