Supreme Court solicits SG’s views on Fosamax case

The Supreme Court yesterday invited the Solicitor General to file a brief in Merck Sharp & Dohme v. Albrecht, No. 17-290. Merck’s petition for certiorari is pending. Justice Alito is recused.

When it was in the Third Circuit, this case was captioned In re: Fosamax. The Third Circuit opinion is here, my post on the opinion is here. Regular readers will recognize this as the case at the center of my ‘Blogging partner rampages …’ post.
