Another politically motivated, inane law in the name of protecting us from ourselves while hurting small businesses in the process. Will banning large candy bars be next?

What would stop sellers from offering a second glass of the nefarious soda for $0.5, .10 or .25? I suspect the companies who manufacture containers would be pleased.

If you are concerned about your kid's weight ADDRESS THE ISSUE AT HOME.

Any defeat of anything proposed by self-appointed Lifestyle Czar Bloomberg is worth celebrating with a 2 liter Coke Classic.

New York recently has become the poster child for elected officials gone amuck with authority they don't have. it's nice to see courts actually following the rule of law and protecting citizens from these predators.

Soda is just the tip of the iceberg. What's next? All fast food joints? All bars? Gimme a break.

Your NOT going to change destructive eating habits thru "consumer education". The food industry marketing machine is incredible and no matter what people seem to believe many are powerless against its onslaught. This law is not be the way to do it but its obvious we will need intelligent regulation to get control of this epidemic before we are all dead.

Good for the judge, I'm tired of Nanny State liberalism. This reminds me of Mark Dayton vetoing the fireworks law which allowed Minnesotans to shoot off something other than lady fingers. Now we still have to drive to Wisconsin or the Dakota's to get firworks and give them the revenue.

While I agree the law is absurd, soda in that amount is ridiculous.

Not everyone is overweight. How and why does Bloomberg have time for such nonsense? It's wrong on so many levels.

'Your NOT going to change destructive eating habits thru "consumer education".' I wonder how many people have quit smoking in the United States since the 90's? I'll bet many have.
