Acting swiftly on a request from lawyers for Pilot Flying J, U.S. District Judge James M. Moody granted a motion to seal the list of trucking companies that have opted out of a proposed $72 million settlement of diesel fuel rebate charges with the Knoxville company accused of cheating them. The Tennessean reports that both the motion and approval were dated Thursday but did not appear on the federal docket system until today. Moody’s action comes just before a hearing on the proposed settlement, scheduled for Monday in his Little Rock courtroom. The senior judge already has given preliminary approval to the settlement plan.
