Court Upholds Ruling Striking Down Large Soda Ban

Tuesday, July 30, 2013

An appeals court on Tuesday upheld a ruling that struck down a ban on large, sugary drinks from being served in restaurants, theaters and other eateries in New York City. 

The state Supreme Court Appellate Division panel upheld a lower court decision that had delayed the measure before it took effect in March.

The rule would stop many eateries from selling non-diet soda and other sugar-laden beverages in containers bigger than 16 ounces.
