Mo. Federal Judge Refuses to Dismiss Medtronic SynchroMed Infusion Pump Action
November 2, 2020
ST. LOUIS, Mo. — A Missouri federal judge has refused to dismiss a lawsuit targeting Medtronic’s SynchroMed II Programmable Implantable Infusion Pump System, ruling that the claims are not preempted because they allege violations of state law that parallel federal regulations.
In an Oct. 30 opinion, Judge Catherine Perry of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri explained that the plaintiff alleged specific violations of the device’s premarket approval specifications and Current Good Manufacturing Practices and that those defects rendered the SynchroMed adulterated under federal and Missouri law.
