The Wall Street Journal reports…

The suit alleges that FedEx has “known for years that it is unlawfully charging residential delivery surcharges for deliveries to nonresidential addresses.” Those business addresses include not only those of both the law firms that filed the complaint, the suit alleges, but the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Office, and Toyota Motor Credit, among many others.
