Biden HHS seeks to dis­miss PhRMA’s law­suit to stop Cana­di­an drug im­ports

As the FDA has yet to au­tho­rize any state plans to im­port pre­scrip­tion drugs from Cana­da, the Biden ad­min­is­tra­tion called on the US Dis­trict Court for DC late last week to dis­miss a PhRMA law­suit over the im­ports be­cause any po­ten­tial harms re­main spec­u­la­tive.

Biden’s HHS said PhRMA’s “whole­sale at­tack” on the rule that al­lows states to sub­mit such plans to the FDA has not yet af­fect­ed their mem­ber com­pa­nies “in any con­crete way and per­haps nev­er will.”
