(The following is a reformatted version of a statement from
Michael A. Cardozo, Corporation Counsel, NYC Law Department.
The statement was confirmed by the sender.)
“We plan to appeal the decision as soon as possible, and we are
confident the Board of Health’s decision will ultimately be
upheld. This measure is part of the City’s multi-pronged effort
to combat the growing obesity epidemic, which takes the lives of
more than 5,000 New Yorkers every year, and we believe the Board
of Health has the legal authority - and responsibility - to
tackle its leading causes.”
