Sandberg Phoenix files friend of the court briefs in nationwide case to preserve smoking alternatives

Andy Ryan, Tim Sansone, Zach Merkle, and Keith Price recently assisted in preparing and filing friend of the court briefs on behalf of a consumer organization advocating for reduced-harm tobacco alternatives and on behalf of a long-time, committed anti-tobacco researcher and advocate in an appeal challenging a Maryland federal district court’s decision that shortened the timeline for e-cigarette manufacturers to submit premarket tobacco product applications on their products by more than two and a half years to May 12, 2020. The district court’s decision if upheld will effectively result in a ban of e-vapor products and shut down thousands of small businesses dedicated to helping adult smokers quit smoking. Links to the briefs can be found here and here.
