FedEx Announces Successful Conclusion of Internet Pharmacy Case
Memphis, Tennessee – June 17, 2016 – FedEx Corporation (FedEx) (NYSE:FDX) announces that the U.S. Department of Justice has dismissed all remaining criminal charges pending against FedEx and its subsidiaries.
“FedEx is and has always been innocent,” said Patrick Fitzgerald, Senior Vice President, Marketing and Communications, FedEx. “The case should never have been brought. The government should take a very hard look at how they made the tremendously poor decision to file these charges. Many companies would not have had the courage or the resources to defend themselves against false charges. The power of the government was greatly misused when the case was initiated, but the government’s integrity was redeemed by the decision to dismiss the charges today.”
FedEx remains committed to its long-standing cooperation with law enforcement authorities to prevent misuse of its transportation networks.
