Wyeth v. Levine Scholarship Roundup

Earlier this year the Supreme Court rejected federal preemption of tort claims for FDA regulated prescription drugs in Wyeth v. Levine, 129 S.Ct. 1187 (2009).  Since that time several commentators have weighed in on the decision.  After the jump, I have listed the recent scholarship addressing this new case.
