The Supreme Court has apparently been holding the cert petition in the SSRI antidepressant-suicide case of Colacicco v. Apotex until the Court decided Wyeth v. Levine.

Industry would naturally like to see cert denied in Colacicco, but the smart money’s betting on a grant of cert, vacating of the Third Circuit’s decision, and immediate remand to the Third Circuit for reconsideration in light of Levine.
