The latest lawsuit filed against truck stop chain Pilot Flying J — filed June 12 — specifically names as defendants in the case Pilot Flying J owner and CEO Jimmy Haslam and other top executives at the company, in addition to the company itself, following federal accusations against the company that it defrauded carriers out of millions of dollars in owed fuel rebates. Named as defendants in the lawsuit, in addition to Haslam, are John Freeman, Pilot’s vice president of sales; Pilot President Mark Hazelwood; and the company’s national sales director, Brian Mosher.  The suit was filed in the middle district of Alabama by Eagle Motor Freight. The company’s lawsuit relies on for evidence a federal affidavit unsealed April 18, which was used by the FBI to obtain a search warrant to raid the company’s headquarters April 15.  Eagle is a Montgomery County, Ala., based company and said it worked with Pilot since 2009.It is only the second lawsuit so far to mention members of Pilot Flying J’s senior leadership. It, like all but one other of the lawsuits, is a class-action suit. This suit marks at least the 14th suit brought against the company since April 15.  Eagle is suing Pilot for mail fraud, conspiracy to commit fraud, breach of contract, deceptive trade practices, unjust enrichment, fraudulent misrepresentation, negligent misrepresentation and suppression.  The carrier is seeking for itself and the class actual, consequential, incidental and punitive damages sustained, costs of the suit, attorney’s fees, litigation expenses and court cases, along with equitable and injunctive relief. Like the other suits, it also asks for a jury trial for the case.

  1. Howdy! I realize this is kind of off-topic however I had
    to ask. Does building a well-established blog such as yours require a massive amount
    work? I am completely new to running a blog however I do write in my journal every
    day. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to
    share my experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for new aspiring bloggers.


    • Well, I just blogged about anything. I started out blogging about my job, trucking, then I just put stuff out there about anything that interest me. My observations, feelings and such. I still blog about the trucking industry but not as much. You are using a journal, maybe there is something you wrote that may interest someone else. Put it out there and extend the content a little. If you have seen any other of my blogs, you will see that they are all different. I also started another blog page to put querky things on. ( Just started this one, not much there yet.


  2. Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working
    with? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m
    having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most
    blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
