The federal trial of eight former Pilot employees accused of involvement in a scheme to cheat customers out of promised discounts and rebates could take up to six weeks, the Knoxville News Sentinel reports. Senior U.S. District Judge Curtis L. Collier on Thursday approved moving the trial to Chattanooga, instead of having the trial in Pilot’s headquarters city of Knoxville, as well as approved attorney requests to begin proceedings on Oct. 31. Pilot has paid $92 million in federal penalties and $85 million on a class-action settlement with 5,500 trucking companies.
