We talk with Lewis A. Grossman, a professor of law at American University and Of Counsel at Covington & Burling. Lewis is on sabbatical during academic year 2017-18, serving as a Law and Public Affairs (LAPA) Fellow at Princeton University. He teaches and writes in the areas of American legal history, food and drug law, health law, and civil procedure. He has also been a Visiting Professor of Law at Cornell Law School.
Our Lightning Round touches on nursing home arbitration (resources here, here, and here), the decline in the number of FDA warning letters, EEOC wellness program regulation, single payer, and the resilience of the exchanges.
Our conversation with Lewis focused on the history of empowered patients and American health libertarianism. Activists played a major role, as his fascinating article AIDS Activists, FDA Regulation, and the Amendment of America’s Drug Constitution shows.
