Appeals court strikes down NYC's big-soda ban - Yahoo! Finance
Good! That was too much big government interference. That's +1 for the people.NEW YORK (AP) -- New York City's crackdown on big, sugary sodas is staying on ice.
An appeals court ruled Tuesday that New York City's Board of Health exceeded its legal authority and acted unconstitutionally when it tried to put a size limit on soft drinks served in city restaurants.
The state Supreme Court Appellate Division panel upheld a lower court decision that had delayed the measure before it took effect in March.
