Agility to file statement by 25 February

23 February 2010

The court in Atlanta will have until 11 March to file their own brief

Kuwaiti-based logistics firm Agility has until 25 February to file a statement to an Atlanta, Georgia court to explain why the company claims that it was not properly served with an indictment in November last year.

Once Agility has filed its statement on the case, the Department of Justice will then have 14 days to respond by filing its own brief stating whether the firm was properly indicted or not, according to a spokesman for Agility.

The process, known as a briefing schedule, is aimed at preserving the company’s rights while it continues discussions with the Department of Justice to resolve the case.

No court appearances have yet been scheduled.

On 9 February, MEED reported that the court had agreed to assign the case for purposes of setting a briefing schedule and entered a plea of not guilty on the company’s behalf to allow the case to move forward (MEED 09:02:10).

The company was indicted on 16 November 2009 under its previous name, the Public Warehousing Company (PWC), in a dispute with the department over multiple charges of conspiracy and fraud.
