Pilot Flying J Lawyer Urges Claimants to Choose 'Best Interest' in Settlement

The Nashville attorney representing Pilot Flying J in its trucking rebate case today added his opinion to the discussion of a class action agreement reached in Arkansas federal court. In a statement released today, Aubrey Harwell of Neal & Harwell PLC said, "The choices for any potential clients in this case are clear:  1) join the class, receive 100 percent of any monies owed with 6 percent interest, within a few months without a long drawn out court battle and with no other costs or legal fees deducted; or 2) opt out of the class, which they have every right to do; go to court, get whatever they can; and pay all costs, including legal fees, for the experience. I know what I would advise my clients." Earlier this week an attorney for one trucking company said he was advising his clients against accepting the settlement.
