Pharmaceutical industry scores major victory as class action is dismissed
Canada | 31 May 2012

The Quebec Court of Appeal has sided with respondents Wyeth Consumer Healthcare Inc and Johnson & Johnson Inc in dismissing an appellant's motion for a class action. The appellant sought to represent parents who had purchased certain over-the-counter medicines for children, alleging that the respondents had provided no warning about the lack of efficacy of the medicines or their potential health risks.
