A federal judge has issued a temporary restraining order (TRO) against a new state law that one vaping retailer says would have put them out of business.
Florida based Goodcat, LLC asked for the TRO saying the law discriminates against out of state manufacturers and that the requirements for security firms that vape manufacturers must use is preempted by federal law.
The TRO is good for 14 days and only applies to Goodcat. A copy of it can be found here.
As we reported earlier, vaping advocates say the new law that was set to go into effect tomorrow (July 1) would have put them out of business because it would require manufacturers to contract with certain types of security firms, and only one in the state foot the bill.
Supporters of the law say it was needed for public health.
