Georgia High Court Reverses Itself on Vaccines in Light of Recent U.S. Supreme Court Decision
In light of the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision in Bruesewitz v. Wyeth LLC , Georgia’s highest court has put itself into contention for a “Points of Light” citation by vacating an earlier ruling that favored parents of autistic children over makers of childhood vaccines.
In doing so, according to Law360.com, the Supreme Court of Georgia reversed an earlier state appeals court judgment and remanded the case, America Home products Corp. et al. v. Ferrari et al., for proceedings consistent with Bruesewitz, which held that the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act preempts state law claims against vaccine makers over alleged design defects.
