(AP) -[b] A Knoxville judge on Monday rejected a claim that Pilot Flying J CEO Jimmy Haslam is tampering with potential witnesses in a lawsuit [/b]stemming from an FBI raid on the country's largest diesel retailer. Knoxville Circuit Judge Harold Wimberly denied a motion by Atlantic Coast Carriers Inc. of Hazlehurst, Ga., to block Haslam, who also owns the NFL's Cleveland Browns, from contacting customers who the FBI court alleges were short-changed on their fuel rebates by Pilot. The FBI alleges members of Pilot's sales team deliberately withheld rebates to boost Pilot profits and pad sales commissions. No criminal charges have been filed. Pilot spokesman Tom Ingram said the privately owned company is delighted by the ruling. "There was absolutely no proof of any wrongdoing by Pllot Flying J or its CEO Jimmy Haslam,'' Ingram said in a phone interview. "It was outrageous to suggest that a company cannot talk to its customers. "It's equally outrageous to suggest that a CEO upon hearing that there may have been underpayments of rebates to his diesel fuel customers cannot reach out to those customers and say that if there's been any underpayments let's figure it out and let's correct it.'' http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2013/football/nfl/wires/04/29/2080.ap.fbn.pilot.flying.j.fbi.1st.ld.writethru.0674/index.html#ixzz2RvDUhQ3f [/quote]
