A Win for Small Businesses In New York

Today a judge in New York strike down the bank on sugar sweetened beverages served in containers larger than 16 ounces.

This is a huge win for thousands of small businesses in New York that would have been affected if the ban had gone into practice today as scheduled.

According to the National Restaurant Association the judge (Milton Tingling) found that “It is arbitrary and capricious because it applies to some, but not all food establishments in the city,” Tingling wrote in his decision. “It excludes other beverages that have significantly higher concentrations of sugar sweeteners and/or calories on suspect grounds, and the loopholes inherent in the rule including but not limited to no limitations on refills defeat and/or serve to gut the purpose of the rule.”

The National Restaurant Association was a lead plaintiff along with the American Beverage Association in filing the lawsuit that challenged the ban.  See previous story.
