Mississippi Driver Files Suit Against Pilot Flying J


The hits just keep on coming for Pilot Flying J as multiple carriers and independent drivers begin filing suits against the company.

This week, a Mississippi truck driver filed a class-action lawsuit against Pilot Flying J.  The truck driver is the third entity to file suit against the company since the FBI raided Pilot Flying J headquarters in Knoxville on April 15.

According to Cleveland.com, the suit claims that Pilot sales team members “conspired to reduce promised rebates to truckers to boost their own commissions and company profits.”

The truck driver, Bruce Taylor, states that he’s been a Pilot rebates customer since 2005

In multiple statements, Pilot Flying J CEO Jimmy Haslam has said carriers, not individual customers, were affected.

“Defendants actions were willful, wanton, malicious and in total disregard for the right of plaintiff and class members,” the suit states.

At this time, there is no information on how much Taylor is seeking.
