Michigan Legislature Passes Bills That Would Allow Residents To Sue Drug Companies Over FDA-Approved Drugs

     The Michigan House on Thursday passed a package of bills that would repeal a 13-year-old law that provides pharmaceutical companies with immunity from lawsuits involving FDA-approved products, the Detroit News reports. The main bill was passed by a 61-48 vote and the other bills passed with similar or narrower margins, according to the News. Current law allows plaintiffs to collect legal damages only if they can prove that a company withheld or misrepresented information that would result in FDA revoking its approval of a drug. The legislation would repeal the law retroactive to 1996 (Heinlein, Detroit News, 3/26).
