Just Like Pulling Teeth

A U.S. District Court dismissed Aetna’s much-watched counterclaim under the Colorado Consumer Protection Act against the maker of a dental device. Some dentists use the device “to prescribe radical therapies that involve pulling teeth to treat nondental conditions,” such as cancer.
After denying dental insurance claims in which the treatment was used, Aetna was sued by the manufacturer for allegedly publishing injurious falsehoods, racketeering and other claims. The court ruled that Aetna had no standing to bring a claim under the Colorado CPA.
