Warning Claims Against NDA Holder of Invokana Not Preempted, Ga. Federal Judge Rules
July 20, 2016
ROME, Ga. — Strict liability claims asserted against Janssen Pharmaceuticals accusing it of failing to strengthen Invokana’s warning regarding the risk of diabetic ketoacidosis are not preempted, a Georgia federal judge has ruled, explaining that federal law does not bar the current holder of a new drug application from altering a drug’s label.
However, in the July 11 order, Judge Harold L. Murphy of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia held that warning claims asserted against non-NDA holders are preempted because federal law does not empower them to change a drug’s label.
