Wyeth v. Levine: Alito’s Dissent

More on Plaintiff’s victory in Wyeth v. Levine.

In his dissenting opinion, Justice Alito writes:

This case illustrates that tragic facts make bad law. The court holds that a state tort jury, rather than the Food and Drug Administration, is ultimately responsible for regulating warning labels for prescription drugs.

In other words, six of his fellow justices, all of whom have spent more time on the Supreme Court than Justice Alito, are so blinded by Ms. Levine’s injuries that they are no longer capable of making a rational decision. Does Justice Alito really think this the reason why six Supreme Court Justice ruled as they did in Wyeth v. Levine.
