The Medical Device Safety Act of 2009
Last week, just after the decision in Wyeth v. Levine was announced, a new bill was introduced in the House and Senate in an attempt to reverse legislatively the Supreme Court's pro-preemption decision in Riegel v. Medtronic. The bill is called The Medical Device Safety Act of 2009. Here's a link (originally posted by Drug & Device Law blog) which reports on the introduction of the MDSA in both the House and the Senate. The TortsProf blog has more information and links here.
