New Jersey Court Rejects Brand-Name Manufacturer Liability for Injuries Caused By Generic

Abnormal Use reports that a New Jersey Superior Court has rejected the "innovator liability" theory accepted by a California court in Conte v. Wyeth.  Under this theory, a plaintiff sues a brand-name manufacturer of a drug for injuries allegedly caused by taking the generic version of the drug.  To date, Conte is the only decision upholding this theory of liability.
