On June 6, 2022, Insurance Journal reported that drug maker Eli Lilly was able to achieve a major win in a lawsuit filed against the drug maker by a patient who claimed he suffered a stroke within hours of taking the company’s Cialis, as the Washington Supreme Court ruled that a manufacturer satisfies its duty to warn a patient when it adequately warns their prescribing physician of the drug’s risks and side effects under the long-standing learned intermediary doctrine. That same day, Law.com reported that Sunbeam Products Inc. was likely to be facing several lawsuits in connection with its Crock-Pot multi-cooker, a product that the Consumer Product Safety Commission said it received 99 reports about in relation to burn injuries of varying severity because of the product’s lid detaching during use.
