KNOXVILLE, TN (News Sentinel) -- A Knox County judge today denied a motion by a Georgia trucking company to bar Pilot Flying J CEO Jimmy Haslam from contacting fuel customers.

Circuit Court Judge Harold Wimberly heard arguments this morning from the trucking company lawyers, who had accused Haslam of obstructing justice and buying off cheated customers before denying the motion.

Pilot's lawyer had called the claims "outrageous" and unfounded.

Lawyers for Atlantic Coast Carriers of Hazlehurst, Ga., were asking for a restraining order that would have barred Haslam and Pilot executives from contacting any more fuel customers.
