A New York State judge has stopped New York City from banning large sugary sodas. The ruling by New York Supreme Court Judge Milton Tingling says the city is “enjoined and permanently restrained from implementing or enforcing the new regulations.”

The regulations are “fraught with arbitrary and capricious consequences,” the judge wrote. “The simple reading of the rule leads to the earlier acknowledged uneven enforcement even within a particular city block, much less the city as a whole….the loopholes in this rule effectively defeat the state purpose of the rule.”
