Michigan Resident, Kimberly Kent's Drug Product Liability Case Will Be Argued in the United States Supreme Court on February 25, 2008
Date:2/19/2008

DETROIT, Feb. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Kimberly Kent, the daughter of Virginia Kent, Deceased, seeks vindication in the United States Supreme Court for her mother's death, which was caused by the prescription drug Rezulin. Michigan's unique Drug Company immunity law is being challenged.

Peters is also concerned that if Federal preemption i
