Amicus Brief Filed with U.S. Supreme Court in Riegel v. Medtronic, Inc.
Date:10/22/2007

pre-marketing oversight of medical devices;

-- Enhanced state-law liability would interfere with FDA's extensive pre- and post-marketing oversight of medical devices, not fill a regulatory "gap";

-- State tort liability would stifle the innovation of important and life-saving medical devices and would undermine the affordability of medical treatments; and

-- State tort liability would encourage defensive labeling and over-warning that undermines rational prescribing by physicians.

Counsel for Amici Curiae include Daniel E. Troy, former Chief Counsel at the FDA, and Carter G. Phillips, former Assistant to the Solicitor General, both Partners at Sidley Austin LLP.
