Michigan’s ban on flavored e-cigarettes was temporarily blocked by a state judge, who ruled that the emergency provision short-circuited normal lawmaking procedures.

The ruling Tuesday is at least the second to temporarily bar enforcement of a state measure targeting e-cigarettes amid a rising epidemic of illnesses and deaths linked to vaping.
