Premium Cigars Deeming Rule Fully Vacated

Judge Amit Mehita of the U.S. District Court has ruled in favor of the premium cigar industry’s favor. This ruling means that the deeming regulations introduced by the FDA in 2016 will not apply to any cigar that meets the court’s definition of “premium cigar.”

“This is a great day for the premium cigar industry. Judge Mehta has handed down a scathing rebuke of the FDA and its rule. This underscores what we have been saying for years: premium cigars are different and should be treated as such.” Says Scott Pearce Executive Director of the Premium Cigar Association

“I would like to thank all of the manufacturers, retailers, and partner organizations such as Cigar Rights of America and Cigar Association of America, our litigation team led by Michael Edney, and our government affairs staff for shepherding this monumental decision,” says Scott Regina President of the Premium Cigar Association
