In 2017, Robert Boulter and co-counsel filed a federal class action lawsuit on behalf of lease-driver Thomas Huddleston against Oklahoma based trucking giant John Christner Trucking (JCT) arising out of its lease-purchase program. In essence, the lawsuit alleges JCT made false representations about its lease-purchase program and concealed material facts. After years of litigation, the federal district court in Oklahoma certified a nationwide class of more than 3,000 drivers in the case titled Huddleston v. John Christner Trucking, LLC, N.D. Oklahoma (Case No. 4:17-cv-00549-GKF-CDL). A final settlement was approved by the Court on October 31, 2022. A copy of the final approval order can be found here.
