This Article describes the state of the law as it currently exists regarding judicial review of preemption claims associated with agency regulations, especially in light of three preemption decisions by the Supreme Court in its October 2008 term - Wyeth v. Levine, Altria Group, Inc. v. Good, and Cuomo v. Clearing House Ass’n. The Article then suggests how courts should assess claims of preemption of state law associated with federal agency regulations.
