Rafferty v. Merck: New Development in Product Liability Law in Massachusetts

Tuesday, April 24, 2018 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA

Breaking with the majority of states, in Rafferty, the Court allowed plaintiffs to proceed with liability claims against innovators. In short, the Court determined that there are circumstances in which a brand name manufacturer may be held liable for an injury from a drug the company did not manufacture. We will discuss the potential implications of this ruling.
