Legal Answers
  • Q. Any recourse for a shipper - FedEx denies claim "No damage to contents" but contents broken, box crushed, but unopened?
    A: Sounds like it could be a good candidate for the California Unfair Competition Law as being a course of practice that is unfair, unlawful and/or fraudulent. (See California Business and Professions Code sections 17200 et seq.) There might even be some recourse under state consumer protection laws.
