Juul gets emergency order to block ban

Juul Labs Inc. has succeeded in obtaining an emergency order that blocks the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) decision to ban of its e-cigarettes from the US market, reports Bloomberg.

The FDA had announced that Juul must stop selling its products o the US market with immediate effect stating that the agency had conducted a very thorough review of the product in wake of a rise in teenage use of vaping products. The US Circuit Court of Appeals in Washington has now ruled that the ban should be "administratively stayed” while lawyers for Juul are able to prepare a full appeal of the FDA’s findings. The FDA hat itself refused to put a hold on the ban pending Juul’s appeal court filings found, reports Bloomberg. Juul has said in its filings that, "FDA's extraordinary and unlawful action, which demands that JLI immediately halt essentially all of its business operations, warrants the emergency interim relief requested." The company also felt that the agency did not consider all evidence provided on its e-cigarettes prior to making its decision. “"FDA cannot credibly argue there is a critical and urgent public interest in removing JLI's products from the market right now, rather than after this court reviews FDA's action," read the filing. A lawyer for Juul, Sean Griffin, said that Juul had experienced "disruptions and other severe harms" and feared they "were likely irreparable and were expected to continue and worsen."
According to Bloomberg, Juul is reportedly weighing up a bankruptcy filing with bankruptcy lawyer Chuck Tatelbaum agreeing this would make sense since the FDA ban "basically puts the company out of business”.
