A speedy settlement with some companies won't put an end to legal issues for truck-stop chain Pilot Flying J, since about 50 of the company’s 6,000-plus customers have opted out of a proposed settlement, the Memphis Daily News reports. A number of trucking companies and drivers sued Pilot after an April 15 raid revealed the company had cheated customers out of discounts and rebates. The nation's largest diesel retailer reached a class-action settlement with some customers just three months later.  Tuesday is the deadline to opt out of that settlement. Customers who don't opt out are automatically included.
