Pilot Flying J Amends Settlement Timeline

Attorneys for Pilot Flying J and eight plaintiffs that have joined a settlement agreement on Tuesday filed a motion to amend the settlement, WATE reports. The deal changes the timeline of the agreement, allowing payments to be made for unpaid or underpaid rebates since January 2005 instead of 2008.The change answers one of the concerns raised by trucking companies that did not participate in the settlement negotiations, the Memphis Daily News reports. Those companies have criticized the terms and asked the federal courts to let them go forward with their own lawsuits.
