    FedEx fails to end New York lawsuit over illegal cigarettes - Reuters

    FedEx Corp must face a second lawsuit claiming it shipped thousands of cartons of untaxed cigarettes in New York over roughly a decade, cheating the state and New York City out of tax revenue and undercutting their efforts to curb smoking.

    In a decision made public on Friday, U.S. District Judge Edgardo Ramos in Manhattan rejected FedEx's bid to dismiss claims by New York State and New York City that it violated a federal anti-racketeering law and the Contraband Cigarette Trafficking Act.

    I'll bet their customers got a "smoking" deal.
