WLF DEPOSITION OF FDA COMMISSIONER KESSLER IS JUSTIFIED BY "DIRECT" INVOLVEMENT WITH CME POLICY, FOUNDATION ARGUES; COURT RULING ON ISSUE EXPECTED IN MAY

This article was originally published in The Gray Sheet

Executive Summary

FDA Commissioner David Kessler's "direct, active role" in formulating the agency's draft policy on industry-sponsored continuing medical education makes him eligible for deposition, the Washington Legal Foundation says in a motion recently filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia as part of its suit against the policy. The motion says that "given Dr. Kessler's intimate personal involvement in the issues giving rise to this suit, WLF is entitled to question him regarding his knowledge of those issues."
