Pilot Flying J revises class action settlement

Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE (AP) - The truck-stop company owned by Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam and Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam has revised a class action settlement with trucking companies that were cheated out of fuel rebates.

The original settlement required Pilot Flying J to pay back all money owed with interest. But it only covered the period between Jan. 1, 2008, and July 15, 2013. The revised settlement covers overcharging that occurred as far back as Jan. 1, 2005.

The change answers one of the concerns raised by trucking companies that did not participate in the settlement negotiations. Those companies have criticized the terms and asked the federal courts to let them go forward with their own lawsuits.

A federal judge in Arkansas granted preliminary approval of the revised settlement on Wednesday.
