Supreme Court denies certiorari in PhRMA’s appeal of Alameda County, CA drug take back ordinance
On May 26, the US Supreme Court denied certiorari in Pharmaceutical Research, et al. v. Alameda County, et al., No. 14-751. The order granted requests for leave to file amicus briefs by the Chamber of Commerce of the US, and by the Washington Legal Foundation, Inc., and then denied the petition for a writ of certiorari. In so doing, the Court did not disturb a ruling by the 9th Circuit upholding the validity of the Alameda County ordinance that establishes a drug-take back program paid for by manufacturers of pharmaceuticals marketed and sold in the county. [Orders in Pending Cases, No. 14-761, S.Ct., May 26, 2015]
