New Jersey-based vape company Eonsmoke was ordered to pay the state of Arizona $22.5 million and barred from selling its products in the state, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich announced.

Brnovich filed the consumer fraud lawsuit against Eonsmoke in January, accusing the company of luring teens to its products with its flavored vapes. Eonsmoke didn’t make any efforts to defend itself, and a Maricopa County Superior Court judge issued a default judgment.

Brnovich’s lawsuit also named JUUL Labs. JUUL is defending itself vigorously, claiming it is “working cooperatively with attorneys general, regulators, public health officials, and other stakeholders to combat underage use.” The company, under pressure from federal authorities, also stopped selling its flavored vapes just before the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) placed a ban on the products.
