KNOXVILLE, TN (News Sentinel) -- KNOXVILLE — Another class-action lawsuit has been filed against Pilot Flying J in the continuing fallout from a federal investigation into claims of fuel-rebate fraud.

The lawsuit filed by Osborn Transportation of Gadsden, AL, marks the sixth such case since federal agents raided Pilot's corporate headquarters in Knoxville last month. Federal search warrants lay out claims of a vast scheme to cheat trucking customers on diesel rebates that spanned at least five years.

Pilot has denied any wrongdoing.

The new lawsuit doesn't ask for a specific amount of damages but estimates the loss at more than $75,000. The company asks for restitution, punitive damages and interest on the money lost.
