Defendant FEDEX is liable to the Plaintiff, pursuant to the Respondeat Superior Doctrine.” Plaintiff also alleged that, “Plaintiff shows the cole and proximate cause of the collison, which occurred on May 9, 2021, was the negligence of Defendant Lipscomb, in the negligent operation of his motor vehicle.”
