The plaintiff claims that FedEx was allegedly aware that it shipped illegal prescription drugs and that FedEx' Founder, CEO and Chairman of the Board among others refuse to take responsibility for their failure to correct known problems.

On July 17, 2014, the FDA announced that the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of California charged FedEx with conspiring with two separate but related online pharmacy organizations to distribute controlled substances and prescription drugs to U.S. consumers without requiring their customers to have a valid prescription. On the same day FedEx Corporation announced 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, unlawfully distributed controlled substances and conspired to unlawfully distribute misbranded drugs."

On August 15, 2014, it was reported that according to a court filing FedEx Corporation was indicted in a U.S. criminal case for alleged conspiracy to launder money over deliveries for illegal online pharmacies. The indictment reportedly said that FedEx Corporation delivered controlled substances and prescription drugs from online pharmacies to individuals who subsequently died or accidentally caused the death of others. FedEx Corporation reportedly could be fined $1.6 billion.
