    GOOD NEWS: I decided track down and call the motor carrier listed on the BOL.
    They verified that they in fact did receive payment for the load.

    So, essentially Baxter and Bailey are defending criminals and I'm not here for it.
    I told them they better leave us alone or they will have a real case.

    After a lot of reading through laws and posts from this thread I basically came to these 2 conclusions;
    1) MOTOR CARRIER must get paid, or they can hunt down all the parties on BOL to the end of the Earth.
    2) that the two brokers involved were definitely committing "double brokerage" by the provision defined below which required that the the purchaser of transportation be given WRITTEN NOTICE of the authority under which the cargo is moving, so when broker 1 involved broker 2 there needs to be communication to the payer for it to be considerred "co-brokering" and when theres not its considered "double brokering or re brokering" [re-brokering is a word that was created under the MAP21 law]:
    • 49 USC 13901 - (c) Specification of Authority.— For each agreement to provide transportation or service for which registration is required under this chapter, the registrant shall specify, in writing, the authority under which the person is providing such transportation or service.

    There it goes! Okay, I just want to thank everyone on here again.
    I did not really come to these forums to be educated but more to gain knowledge and experience from others where I was lacking.
    @Midwest Trucker gave me the reassurance, based on industry knowledge I had, to simply make sure the carrier was paid and move on about my business!
    That carrier got paid, shipper and consignee obligations have been fulfilled.
    The 1st broker, the 2nd broker and their collector can all have a nice time suing each other. :p
     
    Jamie113, Rideandrepair, JMon and 3 others Thank this.
