Former FBI Director Louis Freeh joins Pilot investigation


KNOXVILLE (WATE) - The Georgia attorney who is working on a class-action suit against Pilot Flying J has pulled in a big-name investigator to help with the case.

Attorney Mark Tate, who represents Atlantic Coast Carriers and several other clients, has hired the company of former FBI Director Louis Freeh to take part in the investigation.

Tate told 6 News Wednesday that members of the Freeh Group will be doing forensic and investigative work in the case.

The Freeh Group has also worked on other high-profile investigations, including the Penn State child sex abuse scandal involving former coach Jerry Sandusky.

Pilot Flying J recently hired their own independent investigator, Washington attorney Reid Weingarten, to oversee the FBI investigation for the company.

Pilot was raided by the FBI in April because of allegations that the company shortchanged customers on diesel fuel rebates.
