AIDS Trial

In Pretoria this week, court action resumes in a lawsuit that pits 39 major pharmaceutical companies against the South African government and AIDS activists. The drug companies hope to block a law that allows South Africa to import or manufacture cheaper generic medications. NPR's Jon Hamilton reports on what's at stake for each of the major players in the case.
