Cameron Norris ’14 (BA’11) was a second-place winner in the 2014 H. Thomas Austern Memorial Writing Competition, which honors law students each year for scholarly writing dealing with areas of law that affect food and drugs. His article, “Drugs, Devices, & Discovery: Using Fee-Shifting to Resolve the Twombly/Iqbal Problem for Parallel Claims Under the FDCA,” was written for Professor Brian Fitzpatrick’s Advanced Litigation seminar. Norris’ paper addressed the impact of two watershed Supreme Court decisions on the ability of plaintiffs to survive motions to dismiss and thus have an opportunity to gain important discovery from defendants.
