Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
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.
