Judge likely to boot Massachusetts ban of new opiate Zohydro


After Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick banned Zogenix's powerful new FDA-approved painkiller, Zohydro, the company filed a lawsuit arguing the ban was unconstitutional. On Tuesday, federal district court judge Rya Zobel said she was inclined to agree with Zogenix and was leaning towards granting a preliminary injunction that would allow Zohydro to be sold in Massachusetts.
