NEW ORLEANS - A group of Filipino guest workers who allege in a lawsuit that their Louisiana-based employers subjected them to inhumane working and living conditions claim company officials have threatened some of them with deportation unless they drop the case.

A federal judge on Monday issued an order barring Grand Isle Shipyard Inc. and DNR-Offshore and Crewing Inc., a job-placement firm, from contacting any of the 20 workers who sued the companies.
