Judge J. Thomas Greene – Motion for Summary Judgment denied

Miller v. Saia Motor Freight Line, Inc.


August 28, 2006

Judge J. Thomas Greene

Plaintiff had been employed as a truck driver with SAIA for 12 years.  In short, defendant claims Miller was fired because of multiple wrecks and “agressive driving.” Plaintiff claims these are merely pretexts and asserts he was terminated because of his “whistle blowing” actions after plaintiff refused to make runs that plaintiff claims would require him to be in violation of the Hours of Service regulations as set forth by the Department of Transportation.

After reviewing the arguments of counsel, the Court ruled that there are “several genuine issues of material fact in dispute in this case” and denied the Motion for Summary Judgment.
