New Yorkers who enjoy super-sized sodas can keep drinking them, for now.
 
On Monday, a state judge invalidated New York City's large-soda ban, which was set to take effect tomorrow. Judge Milton Tingling, of the New York Supreme Court, called the measure "arbitrary and capricious," according to The New York Times.
The measure would have prevented the sale of sodas and other sweetened beverages larger than 16 ounces. Mayor Michael Bloomberg saw the measure as an opportunity to make the city healthier, citing sugary drinks and large portion sizes as culprits in the obesity epidemic.
 
The Bloomberg administration said it plans to appeal the sugary drinks decision as soon as possible. "We believe that ultimately, the courts will find it consistent with the law," Bloomberg said in a press conference Monday.
