U.S. Chamber of Commerce files amicus brief arguing that the plaintiff cannot constitutionally retain outside counsel on a contingency fee basis to recover public funds
Clients U.S. Chamber of Commerce
Jones Day submitted an amicus brief to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court on behalf of the Chamber of Commerce of the United States of America to contend that it is a violation of the constitutional right to due process and sound judicial policy for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to retain outside counsel on a contingency fee basis to sue product manufacturers in order to recover public funds spent to cover the cost of off-label use of prescription drugs. The amicus brief also argued that the Commonwealth violated provisions of state contracting law, too.
