FedEx sues feds over regulations: 'FedEx is a transportation company, not a law enforcement agency'

The situation that put FedEx in dutch with China is now going to court. FedEx Corp. filed a complaint June 24 in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, seeking an injunction against the U.S. Department of Commerce for its regulations against shipping packages prohibited by the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). FedEx has been ensnarled by EAR-related controversies twice in the past month because of the U.S. ban on some shipping circumstances related to China-based Huawei, the world's largest telecom provider.
