(Reuters) – A US court on Wednesday rejected an appeal filed by Sunoco LP against a new lawsuit related to a class action lawsuit against the Oklahoma fuel retailer.
In August it became Sunoco, a publicly traded partnership controlled by the US pipeline operator Energy transfer (NYSE 🙂 LP, ordered by the court to pay approximately $ 155 million for non-payment of interest on late payments to oil well owners across Oklahoma.
Sunoco filed a separate appeal against a new trial in September.
The U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Oklahoma on Wednesday denied Sunoco's appeal on a new trial and motion to amend or amend the earlier judgment.
In a statement that Sunoco challenged on several counts, US District Court judge John Gibney Jr. described the decision to pay interest only when an owner called it "reprehensible" and criticized another argument of the company in the case "defies logic".
