The Noose Tightens Around TPP Economic Loss Claims

Yesterday, the Eleventh Circuit affirmed dismissal – for failure to state a claim – of TPP economic loss claims in the Trasylol litigation. See Southeast Laborers Health & Welfare Fund v. Bayer Corp., No. 10-13196, ___ Fed. Appx. ___, slip op. (11th Cir. Oct. 24, 2011). That’s good news for our clients and bad news indeed for peddlers of bogus TPP claims.

The reason the TPP lost is quite simple. The TPP had a lot of theories, but no facts – specifically “no facts indicating how it would have independently evaluated Trasylol’s medical appropriateness” aside from leaving the decisions to prescribing physicians (which the TPP disclaimed) or to the FDA (any attempt to challenge FDA approval was a preempted “fraud on the FDA” claim) or to the market (which without more, is barred under New Jersey law). Slip op. at 15.
