South Dakota Trucking Firm Operates Despite Insurance Violation Charges

March 2, 2009

A federal judge has signed a preliminary injunction that will allow a Sioux Falls trucking company to keep operating while a court case against it advances, as long as it carries insurance.

Action Carrier Inc. was ordered in November to keep its rigs off the roads because it wasn’t covered by liability insurance.

The order was in response to a request from the U.S. Transportation secretary for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction against the motor carrier.

The company already was on probation because of earlier violations.

In October 2005, Action Carrier and its owner, Michael Walsh, were ordered to pay $328,000 in fines and restitution and put on probation for five years for breaking federal transportation laws.
