Good news.

This line struck me as well. It is very much in line with how lawyers and bureaucrats work. If you don't define it, you can apply rules to anything. That's how bureaucracy works.
To date, FDA has declined to define a premium cigar ...

I may be reading this wrong but it seems to me that the judge has a problem with the process used in drafting labeling requirements, not with the need or non-need for labeling. He didn't address the other two complaints (which he may have considered not worthy of review) and the definition of "premium cigar" was not considered in this ruling. So in other words "nothing to see here".

The term flavored cigar is also an issue. Maybe we can agree infused cigars should be defined as flavored but what about simply sweet tipped cigar like Baccarat?
