CVS Drops Supreme Court Appeal in Case that Challenged Prescription Policies

Less than a month before the Supreme Court was to hear a Bay Area case against CVS that could have narrowed the coverage of the nation’s disability laws, CVS announced an agreement with advocacy groups and HIV patients who had challenged its policies on receiving prescription medication. In July, the Supreme Court said it would review an appeal by CVS from a lower-court decision that allowed patients to sue over practices, like CVS not letting patients pick up the company’s medications at non-CVS drugstores, that may have a had a larger negative effect on people with disabilities.
