PCA Responds to FDA’s Appeal in Deeming Rule Case

FDA Updates

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration filed a notice of appeal of Judge Amit P. Mehta’s decision to vacate the deeming rule in the case of Cigar Association of America et al v. United States Food and Drug Administration et al (Case No. 1:16-cv-01460-APM)

“We believe that Judge Mehta correctly recognized that the FDA’s decision to regulate premium cigars was arbitrary and overturned. We will defend the Court’s reasoning on appeal. The Premium Cigar Association remains committed to advocating for the rights of its members and ensuring that the unique characteristics of premium cigars are recognized and protected.” Says Scott Pearce PCA Executive Director.

The PCA remains steadfast in its commitment to defending the interests of its members and the broader premium cigar community. The association will continue to monitor, inform, and engage its members and stakeholders on important developments related to legislative, regulatory, and litigation matters.
