Not sure if this was already known or not. Texas wanted it to happen in Texas Court but Pfizer got it moved to Federal Court where they probably have home court advantage.
LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) – A lawsuit against Pfizer filed by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, which was first filed in Lubbock’s 99th District Court, is now expected to move to federal court.
Paxton is accusing Pfizer of misrepresentation and deceptive trade practices when it comes to its COVID-19 vaccine.
Pfizer requested the lawsuit be moved to the federal system, since its work was on behalf of the federal government.
In the filing Paxton accuses Pfizer of making misleading public statements concerning the efficacy of its COVID-19 vaccine, which was supplied to the government as part of operation “Warp Speed” that was formed during the Donald Trump administration.
The suit focuses on three main areas: duration of protection, protection from transmission and protection from new variants.
