Iowa Supreme Court Reverses Grant of Summary Judgment in Favor of Wyeth Inc., Schwarz Pharma Inc. and Pliva Inc
Aug 8 14
The Iowa Supreme Court reversed a grant of summary judgment in favor of a generic drug manufacturer on a failure to warn claim brought by a patient consumer of a medication produced by the generic maker and affirmed summary judgment granted in favor of two brand-name manufacturers of the medication. Theresa Huck sued three pharmaceutical companies, Wyeth Inc., Schwarz Pharma Inc. and Pliva Inc., alleging she contracted tardive dyskinesia, a neurological disorder, as a result of the prolonged use of metoclopramide, a medication sold under the brand name Reglan and as a competing generic formulation. Huck brought failure to warn, product liability, negligence and related claims against the defendants. A trial court granted summary judgment in favor of the defendants on all of Huck's claims. Huck appealed, and the court of appeals affirmed. The supreme court granted certiorari. The supreme court held that Huck's state common law tort claims against the generic manufacturer, which were based on inadequate warnings, were not preempted by federal drug labeling statutory law to the extent that Pliva, the generic maker of metoclopramide, failed to implement stronger warnings approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2004. The supreme court concluded Huck adequately alleged a claim of failure to warn against Pliva arising from Pliva's failure to implement the stronger warnings at issue. The supreme court separately declined to alter long-standing Iowa products liability law to allow recovery against a manufacturer for injuries caused by the use of its competitor's product. As a result, the supreme court joined the overwhelming majority of courts, including every federal circuit court of appeals, in holding Reglan brand makers were not liable to plaintiffs who consumed only the competing generic formulation. The supreme court held that under Iowa law, brand-name drugmakers owe no duty to consumers of generic drugs. To hold otherwise would render brand-name manufacturers the de facto insurers for competing generic manufacturers. While it may be foreseeable that a generic competitor would mimic a product design or label, the supreme court declined to step onto the slippery slope that would result from imposing a form of innovator liability on manufacturers for harm caused by a competitor's product. Accordingly, the supreme court vacated the decision of the court of appeals, affirmed the trial court's summary judgment in favor of the brand manufacturers and reversed in part the summary judgment for the generic manufacturer. The supreme court remanded the case for further consistent proceedings.
