Submission + - Right to Sue Pharmaceuticals Challenged 2

nathan.fulton writes: "The Wall Street Journal reports that the Supreme Court case Wyeth v. Levine may revoke the right to sue pharmaceutical companies. In an irregular move, the FDA has sided with the pharmaceutical company. Concerned consumer rights activists point out that suing "is the only deterrent to corporate misbehavior."

Interestingly enough, the subdomain for the H.O.P.E forum ( still displays the conference's forum, which is used to plan talks and share information (pictures, keynotes, ideas, etc.) on earlier conferences.
