From New York Newsday:
Federal government sues to stop importation of drugs from Canada
The U.S. government on Monday asked a federal court to shut down a New York company that allegedly imported prescription drugs from Canada for resale in the United States.

Claire Ruggiero and her daughter-in-law, Christine Ruggiero, introduced drugs to the U.S. market that had not been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, according to a lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Manhattan.

The lawsuit doesn't specify an amount, but the government has asked the court to shut down the Ruggiero's business, Canada Care Drugs, based in Goshen, N.Y.
