Three Trucking Companies have agreed to undisclosed settlements after Pilot Flying J cheated companies out of fuel rebates. Judge Thaper ordered the settlements be disclosed, “if the parties cannot consummate the settlement by Friday, April 10, 2015, then any party may move to restore the case to the Court’s calendar.” This still leaves 4 trucking companies continuing their civil lawsuit.
Past Effects of Charges
-Pilot Flying J paid the government $92 million to protect the company from criminal prosecution. This however did not protect individuals from being prosecuted.
-10 Pilot executives have entered plea bargain agreements to cooperate with the investigation.
