California has filed lawsuits against two online retailers of vaping products.

Attorney General Rob Bonta alleges that the California companies violated state and federal laws governing tobacco sales and the state’s Unfair Competition Law, in part by failing to properly verify the ages of consumers before selling them tobacco products and by selling tobacco products through remote sales transactions.

The complaints against the company and its CEO (together, “Ejuicesteals”) as well as E-Juice Vapor, Inc. along with an affiliated entity and individuals (collectively, “E-Juice Vapor”) allege multiple violations of California tobacco sale laws, including failing to comply with age verification requirements and with various shipping and delivery requirements, according to JD Supra.

The AG’s office requests injunctive and equitable relief, civil penalties, damages, and costs.
