In an expected move, Logic Technology Development obtained a court order from the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit that temporarily stays the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s marketing denial order (MDO).

The temporary stay issued by the circuit court means that both the Logic Pro Menthol e-Liquid package and the Logic Power Menthol e-Liquid package products can be sold by retailers and wholesalers in the United States while the stay is in place.

The Third Circuit will now consider a further motion from Logic regarding the MDO that the company has seven days to file, according to media reports.

“The foregoing motion for a partial administrative stay is GRANTED as follows. The FDA’s marketing-denial order is TEMPORARILY STAYED as to the Logic Pro Menthol e-Liquid Package and the Logic Power Menthol e-Liquid Package products. Within seven days of this order, the petitioner must file its motion for a stay pending the petition,” the order states. “The FDA’s response must be filed within ten days thereafter.

“The panel considering the stay motion may decide it without waiting for a reply […] so any reply must be filed as quickly as possible (and no later than three days after the response).”

The temporary administrative stay will remain in effect until a panel of the court decides on Logic’s new stay motion. If no timely stay motion is filed, the clerk is authorized and directed to vacate the temporary administrative stay.
