The case was captioned Beaty v. FDA in the District Court.  It is presently captioned Cook v. FDA.  It may have a different caption by the time it is decided.  Arizona keeps "mooting" the lead plaintiffs.

The plaintiffs are represented by the Arizona Federal Public Defender, despite the absence of any statutory authorization for that office to file civil suits, and by the law firm of Sidley Austin LLP, contra bono publico.
