We study a system that was proposed in  in order to model the dynamic of Smectic-A liquid crystals. We establish the energy dissipative relation of the system and prove the existence of global weak solutions. A higher order energy estimate is also established for the existence of the classical solutions and the regularity of the weak solutions. Some regularity and stability results are also discussed in this paper.
