Supreme Court Hears Case on Liability Over Generic Drugs

The Supreme Court heard oral arguments today about who is liable for a faulty generic drug. A woman who took a pain killer ended up losing much of her skin, had to be put in a drug-induced coma and is now blind. The manufacturer says they are not liable because they make the drug exactly as the brand manufacturer did and the FDA approved it. We talk to Andre M. Mura, Litigation Counsel, Center for Constitutional Litigation, P.C.

Voting Rights Laws Go to Supreme Court

Yesterday, the Supreme Court heard the case of Arizona v. Inter Tribal Council of Arizona, in which they are being asked if the state can add requirements for voter registration beyond what is called for in federal law. In this case, whether they can demand documentary proof of citizenship. It’s the second case of voter rights the Court is being asked to review this term. We talk to Ben Hovland, Senior Counsel, Fair Elections Legal Network

Republican Chair Proposes Plans for GOP Future

National Republican leader Reince Priebus yesterday announced a plan to revitalize the GOP for the future, particularly through a program to reach out to minority voters. The RNC chairman said that the party has failed to make inroads among people who should be Republicans and they have been unfairly misrepresented as a result. Priebus’s comments came just a couple days after the Conservative Political Action Conference during which conservatives discussed a great deal about how to rebuild the party to better reflect the country. We talk to Kevin Cirilli, Reporter for POLITICO.
