Ephedra retailer litigation



Can persons who sought out the diet supplement ephedra, and then were harmed by it, sue health food stores and other retailers for having made it available? In California at least, they can and do, resulting last month in a $4 million verdict against a sports nutrition retailer one of whose customers suffered a stroke after using the substance. Galen's Log covers the issue, prompting extensive comments including letters from both the plaintiff's sister and the plaintiff's lawyer, and further discussion after that.
