CLEVELAND — Attorneys for Pilot Flying J filed a motion Monday asking a federal judge in Arkansas to sign off on a class action settlement that is set to be approved next week.
A hearing on the proposed $72 million settlement is scheduled to be heard Nov. 25 in Little Rock.
In a memo in support of a joint motion for final approval, attorneys wrote that only one percent of more than 6,000 trucking company class members opted out of the settlement offer.
Aubrey Harwell and others who represent Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam’s family corporation say 59 unique companies opted out of the settlement and chose to sue individually. No companies objected to the deal.
