Supreme Court hears oral argument in Riegel v. Medtronic, Inc.

December 4, 2007

We previously reported that the Supreme Court had agreed to hear the PMA device preemption case Riegel v. Medtronic, Inc. The status of the case was in question earlier this fall because of an untimely motion to substitute the correct party (following the death of the petitioner). The Court exercised its discretion to grant the untimely motion, however. Today, attorneys for the parties, and the Solicitor General’s Office (supporting Medtronic) argued their respective positions before the Court.
