Recently the Supreme Court instructed the Seventh Circuit Court to re-review a case, Mitchell v. Collagen Corp., which, in 1995, was decided in Collagen's favor based on federal preemption of state law claims. In addition, the Supreme Court denied the company's petition for review of the Ninth Circuit Court's decision in Kennedy v. Collagen Corporation, another federal preemption case, in which preemption was denied. The Supreme Court's decisions are not an opinion by the Court on the merits of either case.
