Judge stops NYC sugary drink ban

New York's ban on big, sugary soft drinks fizzled out the day before it was set to kick in.
New York (CNN/WSYR-TV) -- New York's ban on big, sugary soft drinks fizzled out the day before it was set to kick in.

A state judge invalidated the law on Monday afternoon - just hours before it was set to go into effect.

The ban limited the size of a drink to no more than 16 ounces in an effort to reduce obesity rates.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg's office tweeted its plans to appeal the decision.
