This case involves a trucking company that was hired to deliver scrap metal on behalf of a large appliance manufacturer to a third-party recycling company. One of the truckers working for the logistics company instead stole these recyclables and re-sold the scrap metal to a different company. This company failed to verify where the trucker had obtained the scrap metal, and did not confirm that the scrap had been obtained legally. The driver went on to defraud the company supplying the scrap metal for an extended period of time, netting tens of thousands of dollars in the process. It was claimed that the receiving facility was at fault for failing to investigate or verify the source of the scrap that was being sold, and that they should have refused to do business with the driver.
