The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia temporarily delayed the FDA’s July devices on Friday after the e-cigarette Giant called the agency’s order “extraordinary and unlawful” in a court filing, the Wall Street Journal reports.

The FDA said Thursday that it has not “received clinical information to suggest an immediate hazard associated with the use of” July devices, but that there is “insufficient evidence to assess the potential toxicological risk” of using the products.

July hit back on Friday, arguing that it will “suffer significant irreparable harm.”
