FedEx faces drug charges
By SUDHIN THANAWALA
SAN FRANCISCO — Two giants — the U.S. government and FedEx — are set to do battle in a federal court over the explosive claim that the shipping company knowingly delivered illegal prescription drugs such as Ambien from pill mills to dealers and addicts, some of whom died.
Fedex has denied the charges and says it only shipped what it believed were legal drugs from licensed pharmacies. Opening statements are scheduled to start Monday.
