Medalie v. Bayer Corp., 2007 U.S. App. LEXIS 29859 (8th Cir. 2007)

Richard J. Medalie, brought suit under the Medicare Secondary Payer statute (the “MSP”) against the drug companies that developed, manufactured, and marketed the drug Baycol. Following its decision in Stalley v. Catholic Health Initiatives, Nos. 06-3884, 06-4121, 2007 U.S. App. LEXIS 27331, 2007 WL 4165751 (8th Cir. Nov. 27, 2007), the Court held that an MSP action is not a qui tam action. A plaintiff who lacks any injury in fact does not have standing to pursue an MSP action.
