A state judge on Monday stopped Mayor Michael Bloomberg's administration from banning New York City restaurants and other venues from selling large sugary drinks, a major defeat for the mayor who has made public health initiatives a cornerstone of his tenure at City Hall.
The nanny Mayor's Big Gup law has been shot down. Maybe he will make mandatory broccoli eating his next health law.
The city is "enjoined and permanently restrained from implementing or enforcing the new regulations," New York Supreme Court Judge Milton Tingling decided Monday.
This puts a major dent in Bloomberg’s legacy as the nanny Mayor of New York.
