BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's Supreme Court says a Valley

City company is owed more than $15,000 for a ruined shipment of

frozen pizzas.

Pizza Corner Inc. sold the pizzas to a customer in Anchorage,

Alaska four years ago. Court documents say the pizzas thawed when

they were shipped to Tacoma, Wash., and the buyer refused the

shipment when it arrived in Alaska.

Pizza Corner contended the CFL Transport trucking company's

refrigeration unit didn't keep the pizzas frozen in Tacoma. Some

shipping paperwork indicated the pizzas were stored at 41 degrees.

The trucking company's lawyer argued the paperwork shouldn't

have been used as evidence because the information wasn't

confirmed. The judge who heard the case considered the shipping

information and ruled against the trucking company. The Supreme

Court affirmed the decision Tuesday.
