Albany, N.Y. - New York state’s ban on flavored e-cigarette and vaping products was scheduled to go into effect Friday, but now that ban is being delayed by state courts.
A New York State Appellate Division Court has granted a temporary restraining order, in response to a lawsuit.
Four appellate judges ruled that the state is “temporarily enjoined and prevented from enforcing” the flavor ban until a ruling on the motion for a preliminary injunction is determined.
That motion hearing is scheduled for October 18
So, for now, the ban on flavored e-cigarettes is on hold.
