Washington, DC—“Today, the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments in a case about a unique Michigan law.

“The Michigan law denies an injured party fair compensation -- unless a drug company misrepresents or withholds critical information from the FDA during the drug approval process. Only then can people receive justice in the courtroom. The U.S. Supreme Court should not make it even more difficult to hold drug companies accountable.

“Warner-Lambert v. Kent will only affect Michigan state tort claims regarding certain prescription drugs and will not be applied broadly.”

As the world's largest trial bar, the American Association for Justice (formerly known as the Association of Trial Lawyers of America) works to make sure people have a fair chance to receive justice through the legal system when they are injured by the negligence or misconduct of others—even when it means taking on the most powerful corporations.
