Court authorizes Class Action Against Federal Express Canada Corporation
By judgment dated December 20, 2018, the Superior Court of Quebec authorized the institution of a class action against Federal Express Canada Corporation (“FedEx”) on behalf of Quebec consumers and legal persons who, from September 21, 2017, until December 20, 2018, were charged and paid customs duties and/or processing fees collected by FedEx in respect of the import of any goods originating from a European Union Country or a beneficiary of the Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (known as “CETA”).
FedEx’s appeal of the authorization judgment was dismissed by judgment of the Court of Appeal dated November 11, 2019 (rectified on November 14, 2019).
Following the authorization judgment, a class action lawsuit was filed alleging that FedEx illegally collected from Quebec customers and legal persons customs duties and/or processing fees in respect of the import of any goods originating from a European Union Country or a beneficiary of the CETA between September 21, 2017, until December 20, 2018
The class action seeks the reimbursement of the customs duties/processing fees unlawfully collected, in addition to punitive and exemplary damages.
