FedEx has been summoned to appear in federal court in San Francisco on July 29. At that time, the company intends to plead not guilty, according to Patrick Fitzgerald, senior vice president marketing and communications. “We will defend against this attack on the integrity and good name of FedEx and its employees,” said Fitzgerald in a statement.
