- New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg's controversial ban on big, sugary beverages suffered a setback on Monday as New York Supreme Court Judge Milton Tingling ruled against the regulations, forbidding the city from enforcing them.
- The new rules were scheduled to go into effect Tuesday.
- Bloomberg had hoped that New York State might expand his city's restrictions on sugary drinks larger than 16 oz. in size to convenience and grocery stores as well.
