At Least 28 Vape Companies Have Challenged MDOs in Court


Although news about vaping industry legal actions against the FDA has focused mostly on Turning Point Brands’ successful challenge, at least 27 other manufacturers and distributors have also filed petitions asking federal circuit courts to review their Marketing Denial Orders (MDOs).

None of the companies on the list of MDO recipients received their denials after Sept. 17, which means those on the list that have not already filed a petition for review are beyond the 30-day window for appeal. However, several of the companies that have filed actions in court are not included on the FDA’s list, so it’s possible other unlisted companies are still within the 30-day time limit. (The FDA also hasn’t updated its official list since Sept. 23.)

We have created a list of manufacturers that have filed petitions for review of MDOs, and in some cases motions for a stay of FDA enforcement. They’re listed alphabetically, and next to the company name is the date of the legal action, the circuit court hearing the petition, and other applicable information. If we have covered the case in an article, the most recent coverage is linked. (For those companies whose names are known only from a list created by the Public Health Law Center we have no filing dates.)

This list will be updated if additional court filings become available.
