Browns owner Jimmy Haslam and his Pilot Flying J Travel Centers have agreed to settle scores of class action lawsuits filed by truckers who alleged they were cheated of promised fuel rebates.
The Class Settlement agreement was approved Tuesday by U.S. District Judge James M. Moody in federal court for the Eastern District of Arkansas. At least 21 trucking companies across the country have filed lawsuits. According to court documents, the Settlement Agreement “provides for a nationwide class settlement of the claims that are the subject of this litigation.”
The court found that more than 4,000 customers of Haslam’s Pilot Flying J company fall into the Settlement Class as defined in the agreement.
