"We think the judge is totally in error in the way he interpreted the law and we are very confident that we will win on appeal."
Alas, yesterday brought more bad news for the pocket dictator...
Another court ruling has taken the fizz out of New York City's ban on big, sugary sodas.
A New York appeals court on Tuesday ruled that the city Board of Health exceeded its legal authority and acted unconstitutionally when it tried to put a size limit on soft drinks served in city restaurants.
"The Board of Health overstepped the boundaries of its lawfully delegated authority," the court said in its decision.
The state Supreme Court Appellate Division, with its opinion, upheld an earlier ruling that stopped the ban from taking effect in March.
The ruling of the four judge panel was unanimous, but that hasn't stopped the demented billionaire from entertaining the same delusion as before.
"Today's decision is a temporary setback, and we plan to appeal this decision as we continue the fight against the obesity epidemic."
Poor old Bloomberg. He must hate living in America with that whole freedom thing they have over there.
