CASE ENTRY

Association for Accessible Medicines v. Frosh

After “Pharma Bro” Martin Shkreli increases the price of a generic AIDS drug by 5,000 percent, Maryland legislators ban “price gouging” of “essential” generic drugs. Drug companies: Which is unconstitutional. The Commerce Clause limits the power of states to control conduct outside their own borders. Fourth Circuit: Just so. Maryland is directly controlling prices charged outside Maryland, so the law must go.
