Rutledge v. Pharmaceutical Care Management Association

Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
18-540 8th Cir. Oct 6, 2020
TBD TBD TBD OT 2020

Issue: Whether the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit erred in holding that Arkansas’ statute regulating pharmacy benefit managers’ drug-reimbursement rates, which is similar to laws enacted by a substantial majority of states, is pre-empted by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, in contravention of the Supreme Court’s precedent that ERISA does not pre-empt rate regulation.
