On Tuesday, another company filed a lawsuit against Pilot Flying J and its CEO Jimmy Haslam. Haslam is also the owner of the Cleveland Browns.

A 37-page lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court in Illinois by Arka Logistics Inc. Tuesday afternoon.

It basically alleges the same fuel rebate discrepancies as other similar lawsuits filed within the past few months. 

Arka, based in Markham, Illinois, has also been known as Arka Transport Inc. and Rite Logistix Inc.

Like the other lawsuits, this lawsuit alleges Arka was a party to a fuel rebate and/or discount contract with Flying J between approximately 2008 until the present, under which Flying J was required to credit or refund a certain percentage of Arka 's fuel purchases on a monthly basis.

Arka alleges that Pilot Flying J obtained money by false promises and "...intentionally, unilaterally and fraudulently reduced and withheld fuel rebates and/or discounts owed to Arka."

It alleges that since 2005, Pilot Flying J "...intentionally devised, engaged in, condoned and/or ratified the above-referenced nationwide scheme to defraud and cheat plaintiff and class members and/or obtained money from Plaintiff and Class Members under false promises."
