Attorney files motion for injunction against Pilot Flying J


KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A motion for an injunction was filed Thursday asking a judge to stop employees at Pilot Flying J from contacting possible plaintiffs in a lawsuit over the diesel fuel rebate scandal.

On Wednesday, Mark Tate, the attorney behind the lawsuit, claimed efforts to restore Pilot's reputation with the trucking industry were interfering with the case.

The filing also points to an interview with W.N. Morehouse Truck Line Inc. President Brad Morehouse, who expressed outrage in a USA Today article, but later was approached by Jimmy Haslam with a repayment offer.

Office manager Curt Morehouse told 6 News Wednesday the company was pleased with the outcome.

Pilot said its attorneys consider the allegations of witness tampering "outrageous."
