NY Times Supports Patients' Rights to Sue Medical Device Makers

The New York Times editorialized, "Now that the Supreme Court has ruled that patients can sue drug companies in state courts for harm caused by medicines approved by the Food and Drug Administration, Congress ought to give patients the same right to sue makers of medical devices." The paper concludes, "Suits in state courts reinforce federal regulations. Patients who have been hurt by faulty medical devices should have the right to seek redress there."
