Trucking company to blame for ruined North Dakota pizzaBISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota's Supreme Court says a Valley City company is owed more than $15,000 for a ruined shipment of frozen pizzas.
Pizza Corner Inc. sold the pizzas to a customer in Anchorage, Alaska four years ago. Court documents say the pizzas thawed when they were shipped to Tacoma, Wash., and the buyer refused the shipment when it arrived in Alaska.
Pizza Corner contended the CFL Transport trucking company's refrigeration unit didn't keep the pizzas frozen in Tacoma. Some shipping paperwork indicated the pizzas were stored at 41 degrees.
The trucking company's lawyer argued the paperwork shouldn't have been used as evidence because the information wasn't confirmed. The judge who heard the case considered the shipping information and ruled against the trucking company. The Supreme Court affirmed the decision Tuesday.
