New York Nanny-in-Chief Mike Bloomberg gets shot down by the courts:
A state judge ruled Monday that the ban on sales of 16-ounce sugary drinks is “arbitrary and capricious.”
New York Supreme Court Judge Milton Tinglin issued the ruling one day before the ban was slated to go into effect.
UPDATE: This fellow nails it…
“Serious problems like obesity cannot be addressed by the imposition of an arbitrary and porous Mayoral fiat,” wrote Matthew Greller, a spokesman for the National Association of Theatre Owners of New York State. “This issue was never about obesity, nor about soda. This was all about power.”
