Pfizer appeal denied in heart valve case:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

An American woman who had a Bjork-Shiley heart valve removed in 1992 has been allowed by the US Supreme Court to pursue breach of warranty and fraud claims over Pfizer's efforts to promote the device. Pfizer had appealed against a federal appeals court ruling arguing that such claims contravened federal law on device safety. While the federal court had dismissed most of the woman's state law claims, it had given leave to pursue breach of warranty and fraud claims.
