Report: Pilot properly computed money for truckers

Pilot hired the firm to re-check the company's internal auditor's numbers.

Pilot agreed to pay truckers the money they had been shorted plus six percent interest as part of an $85 million settlement reached in November.

Despite that settlement, Pilot is still facing about a half dozen additional lawsuits.

So far, 10 former Pilot officials have entered guilty pleas tied to charges they deliberately underpaid rebates to trucking companies across the country.
