Juul Labs Inc has asked a federal judge to dismiss or pause hundreds of lawsuits alleging the e-cigarette manufacturer fueled a youth vaping epidemic, saying the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s decisions on how it markets its products deserve deference.

Juul, on May 29, asked a federal judge in San Francisco to stay hundreds of lawsuits by consumers and local governments alleging its marketing created a public health crisis while the FDA determines whether it may continue to market its products, according to Reuters.
