ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The U.S. Supreme Court has denied a Maryland appeal to uphold the state's law against pharmaceutical price gouging.

The high court on Tuesday denied Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh's appeal without comment, letting a lower court ruling against the law stand.

The law approved in 2017 enabled the state's attorney general to sue makers of off-patent or generic drugs for price increases that state officials considered "unconscionable." That was defined as an excessive increase, unjustified by the cost of producing or distributing the drugs.

They were acquitted on all other charges.

WBOC reports that prosecutors must now decide if they will retry the two.
