This is a minor victory as Whitmer plans on taking this to the Supreme Court. vaping360 repost
Michigan vapers can buy flavored products again, thanks to an injunction granted by Judge Cynthia Diane Stephens in the Michigan Court of Claims.
Judge Stephens ruled that plaintiffs Marc Slis and 906 Vapor and A Clean Cigarette Corp. are likely to prevail in their lawsuits against Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), and therefore the state is temporarily enjoined from enforcing its emergency ban. Both plaintiffs demonstrated that they would suffer irreparable harm if the ban remained in place while the trial proceeds, said Judge Stephens.
That means vaping businesses are free to once again sell the flavored products that most adult vapers prefer. The injunction will remain in place until the case itself is decided, which could take months, according to a lawyer involved in the case.
However, the state can appeal the injunction, and both Gov. Whitmer and Attorney General Dana Nessel said Tuesday that they intend to do just that. Whitmer said she would take the decision directly to the state supreme court.
