Michigan appears to be the only state where the drug companies are not accountable if people are harmed or killed. Why? would Michigan be the last state it is a Democratic/liberal state.



Detroit News


Make drug firms accountable in Michigan

T he Dec. 18 editorial defending Michigan's drug immunity law was off the mark ("Don't expose drug makers to business-killing lawsuits"). The News failed to mention that Michigan is the only state in the country that gives the drug industry complete immunity when its products harm or kill people. That means Michigan is the only state in the nation that cannot hold drug companies accountable when dangerous products like Vioxx, Bextra and Fen-Phen cause harm or death.

Anyone living in Michigan can still sue in Federal court.

I think this actually a good idea, lawsuits like this should be reserved for the Federal courts since it is the Federal government that approves and oversees the manufacture and sale of these of these drugs.

That would definately be the way around a drug related issue, since federal court trumps state laws and that they usually take high profile cases, but again it has to be approved for the docket .
