There have been a number of lawsuits filed against the deeming regulations, three of which are important for the cigar industry.

  • The D.C. Lawsuit — The main cigar-related lawsuit, filed against FDA by three cigar trade groups in Washington, D.C.
  • The Texas Lawsuit — A lawsuit that deals more with the question of premium cigars filed by a Texas-based manufacturer, retailer and the Texas retailer's association.
  • The Maryland Lawsuit — A lawsuit filed by doctors and health groups against FDA for not moving fast enough with the deeming regulations.
