Exempting Generic Drug Makers from Lawsuits

The Supreme Court recently ruled that generic drug makers cannot be sued on the grounds of adverse side effects if their product warning labels are the same as those from the brand-name manufacturers.

In effect, the Supreme Court said the federal law trumps state law.
