This brief, filed by the American Civil Liberties Union, the Center for Reproductive Rights, and the Lawyering Project in support of the FDA’s 2016 and 2021 actions on mifepristone, outlines how the lower courts, in rejecting the robust scientific basis for the FDA’s actions, relied on “patently unreliable witnesses” and “ideologically tainted junk science” in their rulings. The brief points out that when other courts have engaged directly with the credibility of these same witnesses and studies, they have routinely discredited Respondents’ evidence for lack of scientific integrity.
