Maryangela Tobin of Plymouth Ma., has filed a lawsuit against FedEx for delivering marijuana to her home and violating their privacy laws.
The company delivered 7 pounds of marijuana to Tobin’s home. She opened the package, thinking it was a birthday present for her daughter, but quickly realized it was full of weed.
The woman immediately called police. When Tobin received a knock on her door later that night, she was shocked to find the intended recipients of the marijuana package. They repeatedly asked her for their package and did not leave the front of her home. Tobin bolted her door and did not communicate with them anymore.
Police made an arrest in the case, but Tobin is now afraid for the safety of herself and her children. She is worried that whoever the marijuana was meant for will retaliate against her for calling the police. The lawsuit alleges that by giving out her private information, FedEx effectively endangered the Tobin family.
FedEx says that is does not comment on pending lawsuits.
