Date:6/24/2013

WASHINGTON, June 24, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is being released by the American Association for Justice:

Today the U.S. Supreme Court issued another handout to the generic drug industry, shielding it from lawsuits for the design of their drugs at the cost of consumer safety.  In a 5-4 decision in Mutual Pharmaceutical Co. v. Bartlett the Court, once again, let a generic drug manufacturer off the hook for the safety of the drugs they produce.  

Despite lower court rulings in favor of Karen Bartlett that the drug she took is an unreasonably unsafe drug, SCOTUS sided with Mutual and decided that they cannot be held responsible for the design of their drugs.
