NBC Sports: "The headlines suggested that the cases were all but over. The reality is that there’s a long way to go until the civil litigation against Pilot Flying J ends."

“The thing that bothers us the most about this class settlement is that it is like a bank robber who gets caught red-handed stealing money, offering to return the money with interest in order to avoid prosecution,” said Jeffrey Friedman, who represents Shoreline Transportation, of Alabama.

They're wishing it was over.

They're wishing it was over. The KNS will be acting like it is over just in time for Haslam's re-election. Bet on it.

Well, it is only preliminary

Well, it is only preliminary approval. I don't pretend to know all the ins and outs, but it's pretty clear that a settlement this complicated isn't going to be a done deal in just a couple of days. There are two many parties, with two many different possibilities. For instance, as Jamie Satterfield said elsewhere, in same cases the trucking companies where contracting with drivers who were being reimbursed for fuel costs. They've got to go back and look at that. Jimmy only wishes that Judge Moody's preliminary approval made all his problems go away so easily.
