Surprise Supreme Court Decision Ends Big Pharma’s Pre-Emption Bid for Legal Immunity

In a 6-3 decision, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled against Wyeth in the Diana Levine case, setting a crucial precedent in the battle against Big Pharma. The ruling ends an important part of the Big Pharma / FDA conspiracy racket that sought to market extremely dangerous (and even deadly) drugs while providing full legal immunity to drug companies, even when those companies actively lied about the safety of their drugs by hiding negative drug studies from the public and the FDA.

The decision has hit Big Pharma [2] hard. The industry, already reeling from layoffs and a loss of innovation, is now facing a wave of lawsuits [3] from potentially hundreds of thousands of people who have been harmed by dangerous prescription medications. The legal path for such lawsuits has now been cleared, and drug companies [4] can no longer claim legal immunity just because they managed to deceive the FDA [5] into declaring their dangerous chemicals were “approved.”

The FDA regime

Three Supreme Court [6] Judges disagreed with the decision, siding with the granting of legal immunity to drug companies: Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Antonin Scalia and Samuel Alito, who called the decision a “frontal assault on the FDA’s regulatory regime for drug labeling.”

“Regime,” of course, is exactly the right word to describe the FDA’s campaign of medical tyranny [7] against the American People. That even three Supreme Court Justices would vote to enforce this dangerous, corrupt regulatory regime is more than a bit disturbing. Fortunately for the American People, the opinions of these three did not prevail.

Big Pharma has long conspired with the FDA to approve knowingly dangerous (and deadly) drugs that are then marketed to the public through a process known as “disease [9] mongering,” in which drug companies scare up new health [10] conditions in order to convince people they need to be medicated. Practically the entire pharmaceutical industry is based on this unholy alliance between the corrupt FDA (http://www.naturalnews.com/the_fda.html [11]) and a profit-seeking drug industry (http://www.naturalnews.com/big_phar… [12]), and if the Supreme Court had granted Big Pharma immunity on any drug approved by the FDA, it could have unleashed a treacherous era of Big Pharma arrogance and the virtual abandonment of any remaining safety measures by the industry

With full legal immunity, Big Pharma would have been able to market practically any poison as a “drug,” regardless of how many people were killed. Even many of its current drugs are, admittedly, little more than poison. For example, the most popular blood thinning drug sold today — coumadin — is literally made out of the same chemical used in rat poison (http://www.naturalnews.com/021434.html [13]). Many psychiatric drugs given to children today are just re-branded amphetamine street drugs like “speed.”

To the great benefit of the American People (and the lawyers who represent them against drug companies), the Supreme Court has now nailed the coffin shut on Big Pharma pre-emption. Sadly, this decision still cannot raise from the grave all the hundreds of thousands of Americans who have already been killed by dangerous, FDA-approved prescription medications, but perhaps from this point forward, enough lawsuits can proceed that drug companies will either be put out of business or be forced to calculate the economic cost of killing patients while facing a wave of resulting litigation.
