BOSTON (AP) — A federal judge says Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick might have been “out of line” in ordering a first-in-the-nation ban of Zohydro, a powerful new painkiller.
U.S. District Court Judge Rya Zobel on Tuesday considered a request by Zogenix, the San Diego-based maker of the drug, to immediately and temporarily halt enforcement of the state-level ban. The company says the ban is unconstitutional.
