 Shubert v. Federal Express Corp.
The trial court granted Federal Express's motion to dismiss, which was predicated on sections 2-615 and 2-619(a)(9) of the Illinois Code of Civil Procedure (735 ILCS 5/2-615, 2-619(a)(9) (West 1996)), and upon the contention that plaintiff's claims were preempted by federal statute.
The complaint further alleged that Federal Express had not amended the Service Guide between November 1, 1996, and June 30, 1997, to assess a fuel surcharge, and receipt of the invoice in April 1997 was plaintiff's first notice that Federal Express was imposing a fuel surcharge.
In its motion to dismiss, Federal Express contended that Counts I and II of the complaint failed to state a cause of action, that the Service Guide had been amended prior to imposition of the surcharge, and that plaintiff's claims were preempted by the Airline Deregulation Act of 1978 (ADA) (49 U.S.C. 41713(b)(1)).
