Judge Blocks Ban on Mega Sodas :p

A judge threw out New York City’s ban on supersized sugary drinks today, prompting an angry Mayor Michael Bloomberg to say the judge was “totally in error” and that “we’re talking about lives versus profits.”

Judge Milton Tingling called the soda ban “arbitrary and capricious” in a 36 page order.

Passed in September and scheduled to take effect Tuesday, the law “would not only violate the separation of powers doctrine, it would eviscerate it. Such an evisceration has the potential to be more troubling than sugar sweetened beverages,” he said.

Bloomberg said the city would appeal the ruling.
