NYC Ban on Large Sugary Drinks Ruled Illegal
NEW YORK, NY (CBS2/FOX28) - New York City's ban on large sugary drinks has officially fizzled out.
Thursday, New Yorks Court of Appeals ruled the ban is illegal and that the city's health department overstepped its bounds when it approved a 16 ounce cap on sugary beverages.
Former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg had pushed for the ban as a way to fight obesity and other health problems.
