2017 Senate Bill 28

Repeal FDA approved drug lawsuit ban

Introduced in the Senate

Jan. 18, 2017

Introduced by Sen. Steve Bieda (D-9)

To allow product liability lawsuits against drug companies for drugs that have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The bill would repeal a tort reform law passed in 1995, under which such lawsuits are prohibited in Michigan courts unless the company intentionally withheld information or misled the FDA about the drug, or used bribery to gain approval.

Referred to the Committee on Judiciary
