FDA Proposed Rules to Hatch Liability for Generic Drug Makers, Waxing Mensing's Preemption Defense

Wednesday, February 26, 2014 

On our Agenda:

In November 2013, the FDA announced a proposed rule that would put generic drug manufacturers on the same "products liability" footing as branded manufacturers. By requiring generic manufacturers to update their labels to take into account new safety data, the FDA's proposed changes would effectively overrule Pliva v. Mensing, which barred most state law products liability suits against generic drug manufacturers on federal preemption grounds. The proposed changes will create significant duties and liabilities for generic drug manufacturers and will impact the entire healthcare system.

Our Panel:

  • Cary Hall, Shareholder | Practice Chair, Products Liability
  • John Barwell, Associate, Products Liability
