Judge dismisses racketeering, other claims against Pilot Flying J

Posted:

KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A federal judge cut racketeering and other claims from a lawsuit against Pilot Flying J on Friday.

The ruling dismisses many of the claims filed by trucking company Wright Transportation.

A breach of contract claim will still be allowed to go forward. The trucking company was also given the chance to amend some of their complaints.

Trucking companies across the nation have sued Pilot with claims that they were cheated out of rebates on diesel fuel purchases.

Seven Pilot workers have since pleaded guilty to fraud charges since the investigation began.
