MOBILE, Alabama - An Alabama trucking company has now joined 20 other similar lawsuits alleging fraud by Jimmy Haslam's Pilot Flying J Travel Centers.
Wright Transportation, Inc., based in Mobile County, Alabama filed the lawsuit in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Alabama.
The company seeks class action status with the 20 other trucking companies that have already filed similar lawsuits alleging Haslam and Pilot Flying J Travel Centers cheated them of promised fuel rebates.
Wright Transportation alleges that since 2005, Pilot Fying J "intentionally devised, engaged and condoned a scheme to defraud and cheat."
Haslam has consistently said he was unaware of any wrongdoing and has not been charged with any crime.
