The United States Supreme Court issued its decision in Sorrell v. IMS Health, Inc., et al. on June 23, 2011. The 6-3 decision, authored by Justice Anthony Kennedy, struck down the Vermont Prescription Confidentiality Law (Vt. Stat. Ann., Tit. 18, § 4613(d), amended by H. 750) as unconstitutional restriction of First Amendment commercial speech.
