By FindLaw Staff on August 28, 2009 4:03 PM

In an action claiming that Plaintiff suffered injuries by using Defendant's weight loss drug, the dismissal of the action is affirmed where: 1) the claim was barred by Tennessee's statute of repose, which requires that an action be brought within one year after the expiration of the anticipated life of the product; and 2) a class-action settlement concerning the drug did not preclude her from bringing her claim.
