Food, Drug & Health

As litigation involving food, drug, and health law has increased, the Litigation Center as stepped up its focus on the legal issues that often recur in these areas.  The Litigation Center has recently filed amicus briefs aiming to preserve the First Amendment rights of businesses to engage and truthful advertising and avoid government-compelled speech, to enforce limits on class actions that are often disregarded in food labeling cases, to uphold the preemptive effect of the FDA regulatory system, and to assert constitutional limits on criminal punishment for regulatory offenses.
