In 2014, was investigated in the inquiry that investigated frauds in biddings for the constructions of trains and the subway, scandal that was known as trensalão, in São Paulo, during governments of the PSDB. This investigation was discontinued by the First Group of the Supreme Federal Court (STF). In that time, the majority of justices understood having no enough evidences of involvement, considering that other witnesses denied their participation in the case. By a note, José Aníbal said the complaints against him have no "factual sustentation" and are based in a "apocryphal, false document".
