    NY judge halts Bloomberg ban on large sugary drinks

    NY judge halts Bloomberg ban on large sugary drinks | Fox News

    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 a health initiatives a cornerstone of his tenure at City Hall. The city is "enjoined and permanently restrained from implementing or enforcing the new regulations," New York Supreme Court Judge Milton Tingling decided Monday.
    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."
    Thank God! Bloomberg's nanny-isms are getting out of control.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    It's sad that the matter had to go to court to be tossed out as ridiculous. What happened to the savvy, independent, strong willed people of New York who at one time would have forced Bloomberg to rescind this nut-case bylaw without going to court? Courts should not be wasting time righting the wrongs of old nannies trying to dictate private behavior. If this man still foolishly harbors any ambition to run for President, hopefully this stunt will forewarn the American people.

    I really didn't. It's almost unusual now to see a judge NOT be a rubber stamp for certain types of legislation.

    They should do the same for the NY state gun law that exempts off duty police and private security firms from its nonsense. Once you start seeing exeptions and exemptions it should become obvious that it is not compliant with the 14th amendment requiring equal protection of the law. Far too many statutes are "sometimes" enforced, but only on "bad people". The Davis-Bacon act is the most loony, as it defines "prevailing" wages that apply only to gov't contracts, when any moron can realize that they are not otherwise "prevailing" wages at all, they are simply union scale wages made into public law.

    Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman

    A defeat for Bloomberg. Judge layed into him too!

    In 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.

    Judge Tingling also suggested that Mr. Bloomberg overstepped his powers by bringing the sugary drink rules before the Board of Health, which is solely appointed by him. The City Council, he wrote, is the legislative body "and it alone has the authority to legislate as the board seeks to do here."


    It's also good to know that Bloomberg would overstep his bounds.....especially if he decides to run for the Presidency.

    I bet the judge is fat and if you look in his chamber's trash there are at least 7 empty 2 litre bottles of coke.
