Judge Stops NYC Soda Ban

CNN is reporting that a judge has blocked the ban of sugary drinks in containers larger than 16 oz in certain venues:

The ban was supposed to go into effect tomorrow.  I feel bad for the owners who are probably scrambling to order in larger size cups and undo all the changes that they've been making to follow the ban.

Do you think the city will be successful appealing the ruling?

I don't understand how the city got the ban in place to begin with so this doesn't surprise me at all. This is the United States of America. While I understand the ban, I don't see how the city can get away with telling me what I can and can't drink.

Bloomberg should be impeached.  His ideology is oppressive and ignorant and will be permanently overturned based on it's inherent hypocrisy.
