N.Y. City Asks Top State Court to Review Large-Soda Ban

New York City asked the state’s highest court to review a decision striking down a local ban on sales of large-sized sugary soft drinks.

The city today urged the Court of Appeals in Albany to expedite consideration of its request, citing a recent American Medical Association study showing the health effects of obesity and Type 2 diabetes, conditions city officials claim are linked to soda consumption, according to a Law Department statement.
