The Goldwater Institute goes to court Tuesday, Oct. 10, trying to force the FDA to reveal details on how dying people can get access to unapproved medicines.

Attorney Jonathan Riches wants U.S. District Court Judge Susan Bolton to order the Food and Drug Administration to disclose exactly how it reached the decision to allow two people infected with the Ebola virus to be administered ZMapp, even though the drug had not been approved for human testing.
