The FDA are being sued by a consumer advocacy group who are trying to push through a ban on the sale of Serzone, which is an antidepressant. The drug has been linked to 20 deaths, and can cause a fatal failure of the liver, according to the group.

Public Citizen, the advocacy group behind the suit, have argued that Europe and Canada have already banned the drug, and Australia and New Zealand are in the process of doing so. The FDA is reviewing the issue.

Public Citizen's Dr. Sydney Wolfe first petitioned the FDA to ban the drug a year ago, however their failure to act has forced the group to ask a federal judge to "protect public safety and prevent needless death and injury."
