The regulations are "fraught with arbitrary and capricious consequences," the judge wrote.

If it's not arbitrary and capricious, can it be New York City law?

In full seriousness: I'm always glad to see tyranny take a hit.

Finally a Judge with a brain. I never understood how Bloomers could get away with this. I hope it stands.

"....Judge Tingling also suggested that Mr. Bloomberg overstepped his powers by bringing the sugary drink rules before the Board of Health, which is solely appointed by him. The City Council, he wrote, is the legislative body "and it alone has the authority to legislate as the board seeks to do here."

The same could/should be said of Obamao and the EPA....

Finally some good news! And I don’t even like soda and I never drink it...

Now I hope they’ll go after some of the other stupid regulations Bloomberg has imposed, and then maybe he can concentrate on lowering the climbing crime rate, getting the “homeless” back under control, etc. You know, little things like that.

Too bad this was struck down.
It would be better for it to get more and more onerous for free people to live in NY so that more will leave for freer pastures.

The judge struck down the law because it was poorly written, he did not say "The state has no business regulating things like this!".
It's a step in the right direction but a small one.

Problem is, too many 32-oz drink-loving libs will infest other states. Nevada, Colorado, Oregon and Washington can attest to libs from CA who wanted to emplace their tentacles in fresh territory.

I'm shocked. God bless you judge!

All kidding aside, many small business had already thrown away quite a bit of inventory to be in compliance with the new law. Small business’s have been hit hard by this.

Sounds like a case for a civil suit -
Bloomy did something outside his authority (as determined by the judge) which caused damages to individuals and entities, and they are entitled to recompense.

got that right, the left are like locusts who destroy a state wiht their ignorant voting ways, then they nmove on mass to states here in the south from the north and , CO, WA, OR from CA.

They grow up voting D or they just want big Govt when it favors them but as soon as druggies want their drugs then to hell wiht big Govt instead they want to ban guns which is a constitutional right and make drugs legal so they can get high.

Then add the homosexual agenda, the cross dressing, what ever perverted sex they have agenda and then tell us in the south and mountain states we should have to put up with it because they went judge shopping and found a turd poking judge.

Forget the wall on the Mexico border by we need one on the Potomac and the mountains of CA
