Plaintiffs win remand to state court in drug labeling case, despite Mensing

Steven M. Sellers

A federal district court in Kentucky held that the Supreme Court’s decision in Pliva v. Mensing has at least one procedural limit—its preemption defense doesn’t apply to a claim that a defendant in a generic drug labeling case was fraudulently joined to defeat the court’s diversity jurisdiction.
