Plaintiffs in the lawsuit that changed the submission deadline for Premarket Tobacco Applications (PMTAs) have asked the federal judge in that case to demand the FDA regularly report on its PMTA review process.

A letter sent Nov. 15 to U.S. District Court Judge Paul Grimm from an attorney representing the plaintiffs requests Grimm reopen the case so the plaintiffs can file a motion to amend the judge’s order.

They want Judge Grimm to force the FDA to explain its progress on PMTAs submitted by mass-market vaping brands.

“Specifically,” writes attorney Jeffrey Dubner, “Plaintiffs will seek a modification that would require FDA to provide regular status reports to the Court giving FDA’s estimate of the date(s) by which it expects to complete its review of the Premarket Tobacco Product Applications (PMTAs) for all products for which PMTAs were filed by Juul, Vuse, NJOY, Blu, SMOK, Suorin, and any other brands that rank among the top 10 brands in market share, according to FDA.”
