These judges, who are just lawyers?
Seem to feel the ‘experts’ at the FDA ain’t shit…..
The case IS going to the Supreme’s…….
Judge James C. Ho rejected the government’s argument that the court should not second-guess the expertise of the FDA, which first approved mifepristone in 2000. The medication is part of a two-drug regimen used in more than half of U.S. abortions, though the second drug — misoprostol — can also be used on its own to terminate a pregnancy.
“I don’t understand this theme that FDA can do no wrong,” Ho said. “We are allowed to look at the FDA just like we’re allowed to look at any agency. That’s the role of the courts.”
Judge Jennifer Elrod took the unusual step of chastising the drug company’s lawyer for pointed language in court filings that criticized an April ruling by U.S. District Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk of Texas that would outright suspend FDA approval of the drug.
Wednesday’s hearing at the conservative U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit was to consider an appeal of that ruling by lawyers for theJustice Department, representing the FDA, and the drug manufacturer Danco Laboratories. Revoking approval of mifepristone, they have said in court filings, would also jeopardize access to non-abortion drugs and more broadly impact medical research and innovation….
The judges randomly assigned to the case are Ho and Judge Cory T. Wilson — both nominated by President Donald Trump — and Elrod, a nominee of President George W. Bush. Regardless of how they rule, mifepristone will remain available under existing regulations until the case is resolved, probably by the Supreme Court….
