BOSTON (AP) — A decision on whether to lift Massachusetts’ four-month ban on the sale of all vaping products has been delayed over a technicality.

New England Cable News reports that an attorney representing vaping companies who oppose Republican Gov. Charlie Baker’s ban failed to file the proper paperwork in the correct fashion on Tuesday.

The Vapor Technology Association and local vape store owners say the ban is causing irreparable damage to their businesses and will destroy a $331 million industry.

The attorney for the vaping companies said he will file an amended complaint by Friday. He is seeking immediate relief from the ban. The state will then have an opportunity to respond.

The state has reported 10 probable or confirmed cases of lung illness caused by e-cigarette products, and one death.
