End of the year "top ten lists"
Tis that time of the year... As we get closer to the end of the year, we will see "top ten lists" pop up all over ... "top ten cases of the year"... "top ten worst decisions"... "top ten things to keep an eye on for next year" ...and so on In fact, I promise that I will prepare my own top ten list at some point and publish it here, but for now I am going to link to the ones that start coming up here and there. Here is the first list of the year. It comes from the very informative pro-defendant blog "Drug and Device Law" and it is called Top Ten Worst Prescription Drug/Medical Device Decisions Of 2009. Given that this blog is clearly pro-manufacturer/pharmaceuticals etc, you can bet the same list could be considered a "best decisions" list by consumer advocate groups. Whichever way you look at it, it is a good list of important cases in the area of products liability.
