    Court Strikes down NYCs "assault soda" ban

    A New York Court has ruled that Bloomberg's executive board of health does not have the authority to ban or limit legal items....

    n his ruling, Judge Tingling found the Board of Health's mission is to protect New Yorkers by providing regulations that prevent and protect against diseases. Those powers, he argued, don't include the authority to "limit or ban a legal item under the guise of 'controlling chronic disease.' "

    The board may supervise and regulate the city's food supply when it affects public health, but the City Charter clearly outlines when such steps may be taken: According to Judge Tingling, the city must face imminent danger due to disease.

    "That has not been demonstrated," he wrote.

    I would imagine that he would have re-started the stop & frisk policy to enforce it

    Anywho... I called his office ... they have "no comment" and sounded kinda sad ...


    I hope he gets hit with a 3 L soda bottle dropped from the Empire State Bldg ... sweet justice

    As it should be...a stupid law from it's inception.
