New York’s proposed soda ban didn’t happen. But would it have been as bad or good as we think? What’s the deal with soda, anyway?
“New York City’s appeal of soda ban ruling to be heard in June”
“The legal battle over New York City’s ban of large sugary drinks is set to continue in early June, after a New York appellate court agreed on Wednesday to hear the city’s appeal of a ruling that struck down the new law.”
“Why Bloomberg’s soda ban fizzled”
“On the eve of the implementation of one of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s most controversial laws — limiting the allowable size of sugary drinks sold in the city — Justice Milton A. Tingling, Jr., of the New York State Supreme Court, sided with the law’s challengers, including the National Restaurant Association, the American Beverage Association, and the Soft Drink and Brewery Workers Union, overturning the Portion Cap Rule, aka the Soda Ban.”
“Banning large sodas is legal and smart”
“A state trial judge on Monday blocked New York City’s plan for a maximum 16 ounce size for a high-sugar beverage. The ban would have included sodas, energy drinks, fruit drinks and sweetened teas.”
