Tidmore Oil Company, Inc. v. BP Oil Company/Gulf Products Division
CV 88-H-2313-S (N.D. Ala. 2-20-90) Slip Opinion; 932 F.2d 1384 (11th Cir. 6-7-91); cert. denied, 112 S. Ct. 339 (10-21-91)
Summary judgment for franchisor on PMPA claim was not appealed. Failure of franchisor to approve an additional site for existing franchisee is not a PMPA violation because there was no termination or nonrenewal. Summary judgment for franchisor on antitrust and breach of contract claims affirmed. Franchisee alleged that franchisor's refusal to authorize the use of its logos at additional locations was in violation of the Sherman Act and a breach of covenant of good faith and fair dealing.
