Appeals Court Affirms Block of NYC Big Soda Ban

A ruling blocking New York’s ban on large sodas was upheld by an appeals court, which said the city’s Board of Health failed to act within the bounds of its authority when it approved the plan. A unanimous panel of the New York State Supreme Court’s Appellate Division, First Department, in Manhattan today upheld Justice Milton Tingling’s March ruling striking down the city’s plan to cap the size of sugary soft drinks sold in restaurants, movie theaters, stadiums and arenas at 16 ounces a cup.
