Arizona wins $22.5 million judgment against NJ vaping firm

The state sued Eonsmoke and e-cigarette giant Juul Labs in January, saying they violated state consumer fraud laws and targeted youth with their products.

PHOENIX — Arizona’s attorney general has obtained a $22.5 million judgment against a New Jersey-based vaping company along with a court order permanently barring the company from selling its products in the state. 

Attorney General Mark Brnovich announced the judgment against Eonsmoke on Friday. 

The company did not mount a defense to the consumer fraud lawsuit filed by Brnovich and a judge issued what is known as a default judgment. 

Brnovich sued Eonsmoke and e-cigarette giant Juul Labs in January, saying they violated state consumer fraud laws and targeted youth with their products.

Juul has denied wrongdoing. Eonsmoke hasn't commented.
