The ordinance was adopted by the Fanwood Borough Council on Feb. 27
QuickChek has filed a lawsuit against the borough claiming that an ordinance passed earlier this year placing restrictions on the sale of vaping products violated the convenience store’s civil rights.
The lawsuit, which was filed April 24 in Superior Court in Union County by QuickChek’s attorney, Chrrstopher John Stracco of Day Pitney, claims the ordinance violates the rights guaranteed to the Whitehouse Station-based corporation under the New Jersey Civil Rights Act.
The ordinance was adopted by the Fanwood Borough Council on Feb. 27 and places further safeguards on the sale of nicotine vaping products in the borough.
Under the ordinance, only retail electronic smoking device establishments licensed by the borough Board of Health can sell electronic smoking devices, components or parts, electronic liquid and or liquid nicotine. The ordinance also made it unlawful for a business “which holds a retail food establishment license,” or a fuel or liquor license, to sell electronic smoking devices, components or parts, electronic liquid and liquid nicotine.
