NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg soda ban: New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg just got smacked down by New York Supreme Court Judge Milton Tingling, who ruled his ban on restaurants selling large sugary drinks was ‘arbitrary and capricious.’ The soda ban was set to start Tuesday, March 12, prohibiting restaurants, movie theaters, sports venues, convenience stores and other establishments from selling sugary drinks of more than 16 ounces.
“It is arbitrary and capricious because it applies to some but not all food establishments in the city, it excludes other beverages that have significantly higher concentrations of sugar sweeteners and/or calories on suspect grounds, and the loopholes inherent in the rule, including but not limited to no limitations on refills, defeat and/or serve to gut the purpose of the rule,” Tingling wrote.
