Pilot Flying J to repay trucking companies

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -

The truck-stop chain owned by Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam has agreed to pay back the trucking companies that were cheated out of fuel rebates.
 
A federal judge in Arkansas gave preliminary approval on Tuesday to a class-action settlement that would pay the companies what they are owed with interest.
 
Federal agents raided the Knoxville headquarters of Pilot Flying J earlier this year after an employee claimed the company was systematically cheating its clients.
 
Five employees have since pleaded guilty to federal charges.
 
Jimmy Halsam is the brother of Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam, who has an undisclosed ownership share in the company. Both have denied any wrongdoing.
