"Judge Breyer warned prosecutors last month that “the case is terminated” if they couldn’t produce evidence that FedEx had “knowingly” shipped drugs without valid prescriptions."

The following is a clear example of the third branch of US government doing the job of serving and protecting the people and preventing overreach by the supposed guardians of the Executive branch, in this case the Justice department.

"Occasionally, once in a great while, fighting the government’s unjust prosecutions pays off.
