Today, the Biden Administration’s Department of Justice filed a notice of appeal on behalf of the United States Food & Drug Administration in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia in Cigar Association of America, Cigar Rights of America, and Premium Cigar Association v FDA.
Earlier this summer Judge Amit Mehta issued a ruling in the lawsuit vs FDA striking down all FDA regulations on premium cigars. Judge Mehta’s decision to vacate the FDA’s regulatory authority resulted from his prior holding that the FDA had acted in an arbitrary and capricious manner, when it failed to adequately address scientific data that CRA had provided during the initial comment period.
