An interesting story with legal ramifications.

According to a report from the Kansas City Star, a 33-year-old woman has filed a lawsuit against a pharmaceutical company after becoming pregnant while taking birth control pills that were later recalled due to a packaging error that could make the pills ineffective.

The woman's lawsuit seeks compensation for health care costs, the cost of raising her now 1-year-old child, and emotional pain.
