Mensing v. Wyeth

Mensing v. Wyeth

Appeal of Minnesota federal court decision holding (1) that a plaintiff’s failure-to-warn claims against generic drug companies for injuries caused by metoclopromide are preempted by federal law; and (2) that her failure-to-warn claims against the manufacturers of the brand-name version of the drug could not proceed on the ground that brand-name manufacturers do not owe any duty to consumers of generic versions of their drugs.

Lou Bograd of the Center for Constitutional Law and Public Justice’s Claire Prestel are lead appellate counsel.

The plaintiff is also represented by Michael K. Johnson and Lucia J.W. McLaren of Goldenberg & Johnson, PLLC; Daniel J. McGlynn of McGlynn, Glisson & Koch; and Wil Fluegel of the Fluegel Law Office.
