Supremes on Science

The Supreme Court is in session and appears to be split on Wyeth vs. Levine, according to the Los Angeles Times. The case is challenging the Bush administration's preemption policy which says that injured customers cannot sue companies by saying a product is dangerous and defective if a federal agency approved the product for the market.
