rules against Novartis in drug suit
SAN FRANCISCO — The California Supreme Court has

a generic version of a drug the company once made.
The court said Thursday brand-name drug manufacturers can

liability could also extend to cases in which the brand-name
drugmaker has sold the drug to another company and stopped
making it.
The ruling came in a lawsuit against Novartis by the chil-
