United States Supreme Court Allows Arkansas Defective Drug Suit to Trial on Punitive Damages

The U.S. Supreme Court rejected a drug company’s appeal to block an Arkansas defective drug trial to assess punitive damages. The Court also let stand a compensatory damage award for 2.75 million in the case of a woman who got breast cancer after taking hormone replacement therapy.

The Plaintiff alleged that the drug company did not provide adequate warning regarding the risk of the drugs. The Plaintiff will now proceed to trial to determine whether punitive damages should be awarded. The trial will take place in Federal District Court in Little Rock.
