Missoula truck company buyers dispute resolved in court

Posted: Updated:

A Chicago man is awarded nearly $2 million in an ownership dispute over a Missoula trucking company that's dragged on for years.

But no sooner did a Missoula County jury make the award than the investor decided to not seek any additional damages.

The development is the latest twist in a fight between two former partners who purchased Jim Palmer Trucking as it was emerging from bankruptcy more than a half-dozen years ago. Milan Kangrga and Blazo Gjorev became opponents when Kangrga filed suit, claiming Gjorev sold Transportation Logistics Corp. International without his permission or knowledge.

In the suit, Kangrga claimed Gjorev had sold off trucks and trailers, and then sold the company, leaving a payment agreement incomplete.

However, the jury ruled Kangrga was malicious. But after the finding, Gjorev waived his option to seek additional punitive damages in a second hearing.

The ruling has no impact on the ownership of the company, which remains under the control of the Wilson family and Transportation Equipment. 

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story indicated Gjorev had waived the entire damage award, and not just the additional damages.
