September 22, 2010 - U.S. Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) jurisdiction over e-cigarettes..
ORAL ARGUMENT SCHEDULED FOR SEPTEMBER 23, 2010
IN THE UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS

SMOKING EVERYWHERE, INC.,
SOTTERA, INC., d/b/a NJOY,
U.S. FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION, et al.,
On Appeal From the United States District Court For the District of Columbia
Civil Action No. 09-cv-0771 (RJL)
The FDA in February 2010 won a temporary delay of a U.S. judge’s ruling that the agency lacks authority to regulate the products as drugs or medical devices and must allow e-cigarettes to be imported. A panel of three appeals court judges temporarily stayed the lower court ruling in order to give them more time to consider the FDA's arguments.
