Kirby McInerney LLP is investigating potential claims against FedEx Corporation (“FedEx” or the “Company”) (NYSE:FDX) concerning whether the Company and its executives violated their fiduciary duties.
On July 17, 2014, FedEx stated in a regulatory filing that it has “received requests for information from the U.S. Department of Justice (“DOJ”) in the Northern District of California in connection with a criminal investigation relating to the transportation of packages for online pharmacies that may have shipped pharmaceuticals in violation of federal law. On July 17, 2014, the DOJ filed a criminal indictment in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California in connection with the matter.” The indictment alleges that FedEx Corporation, FedEx Express and FedEx Services, together with certain pharmacies, conspired to unlawfully distribute controlled substances and misbranded drugs. According to a press release issued by the DOJ in connection with the indictment, as early as 2004, “FedEx knew that it was delivering drugs to dealers and addicts” as FedEx’s couriers “expressed safety concerns that were circulated to FedEx Senior management, including that FedEx trucks were stopped on the road by online pharmacy customers demanding package of pills.”
