The Medtronic case

Today, MPR’s Marty Moylan previewed arguments in a case that will determine how much protection federally-approved medical devices (in this case, from Medtronic) should have from product-liability lawsuits.

We don’t get to hear arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court, which does not allow recording devices in the court. But the transcript of the hearing is now available here (pdf).

For court-watchers, oral arguments these days provide the possibility of a rare event: Justice Clarence Thomas asking a question. Alas, Thomas’ record of not asking any questions in this term is intact.
