Judge Halts Bloomberg's Sugar Drink Ban, Calls It Illegal, Arbitrary And Capricious

Tyler Durden's picture


Just hitting the tape ahead of tomorrow's scheduled hit of Bloomberg's ban on "large sugary drinks":

  • Judge invalidates New York City's ban on large sugary drinks; ban had been scheduled to take effect tomorrow.
  • Judge says sugar drink limit "illegal"
  • Judge finds ban to be arbitrary and capricious.

Has the time come to ban independently thinking judicial authorities who don't agree with multi-term Spanish-speaking authoritarians?

From the WSJ:

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."

We pray Judge Tingling didn't miss a comma or two in his New York State bar exam or else Holder will have a drone on permament patrol above his home.

His name was Milton Tingling

It is probably high fructose corn syrup which is genetically modified (to be a pesticide or to make herbicide saturation possible) and high in mercury content.


PS - If you support cane sugar (non GMO) drinks and remove support form GMO pesticide/herbicide "food," you will get better quality food that won't drive as much chronic disease.

That's bad for Big Agra and Big Pharma.

Yes, Dark Helmet is indeed altitudinally-challenged (in addition to being morally and Constitutionally challenged).

I wonder if he has to ask for a phone book for his chair when he eats out at restaurants --- or has he made phone books illegal in NYC too? Maybe he will just mandate that all chair seats must be at least 30 inches from the floor.

It is confidence in the men and women who administer the judicial system that is the true backbone of the rule of law. Time will one day heal the wound to that confidence that will be inflicted by today's decision. One thing, however, is certain. Although we may never know with complete certainty the identity of the winner of this year's Presidential election, the identity of the loser is perfectly clear. It is the Nation's confidence in the judge as an impartial guardian of the rule of law.

me personally, i only drink water pretty much, none of that sugary drinks, but people should be able to drink whatever they want. yes its not healthy, but there are plenty of stuff, such as ciggarates and alcohol that are a lot worse for you, yet i dont here any proposal for a ban on those items.


let people do what they want, its there bodies, most stuff in this world is not healthy. why not just close down all fast food restuarants, ice cream parlors, etc while we r at it.

Exactly. Just a few days ago he was saying the government "probably" shouldn't force people to exercise. Notice there's no hint that they don't have that option in the statement, or that people have a right to refuse to do what the government tells them; "probably not" force people to exercise is restraint in his mind.

the judge's ruling is a comical....if a state can force everyone to consume its health care products, it can certainly enforce abstention from sugar....

Nice to see a fuggin' lib get slapped down for a change... here in AZ, we voted NO benefits of ANY kind to the damned illegals... but a judge, of course, felt that withholding welfare and food stamps, healthcare and free education from people in our country illegally was against the Constitution...  Jefferson would have puked.

Would be fun to see places in the city taking the same route as the arms makers.  No donuts to government employees until regular citizens regain the right to their own sugary snacks.  That would have the cops on strike within a day.

Bringing new hope to a nation staring into the abyss, with infectious courage, he defeated the English under John de Warenne, Earl of Surrey at Stirling Bridge. Warenne offered to negotiate, urging Wallace to accept the king's peace, this was proudly rebuffed 'Tell your people that we have not come here to gain peace, but are prepared for battle, to avenge and deliver our country."

And we successfully pushed back on soft drink size.

Today we celebrate the assertion of our unalienable right to consume vast quantities of sugar. We urge all Betas to pick up the consumption rate in order to support corporate profits hence enabling a tax cut for the Alpha class.

Further good news: we are proud to announce the availability of diabetes management classes for all. A small fee is all that is required for your citizens to attend the multi level marketing presentation for the distribution of new pharmaceuticals and sundry equipment to support present and future full blown type II diabetes. Most need not cut back on sugar and other carbohydrate intake.

Long live our free Republic!

Because calling Bloomberg a moronic, paternalistic, arrogant asshole would be too harsh?

He may even be wrong about the cause of obesity too but arrogant people do not consider that ever possible. After all if you are successful in one area of your life you must be a genius....right...?

The superorganism, all the tiny folk using their tiny brains, are always smarter than the brightest of men individually....eventually. This is why central planning ALWAYS fails. Once some 'genius' makes a policy it can never be undone. In most things people should be left on their own. At MOST it is OK to tell them what you believe. After that mankind will get it right....but the genius is worried he won't get the glory.
