New York soda portion-cap litigation

The litigation challenging New York City’s sugar-sweetened-beverage portion-cap rule continues, with the city’s final appeal set to be argued before the New York Court of Appeals on June 4.  I submitted this amicus brief in support of the rule’s validity, along with five colleagues – Rick Hills of NYU, Michael Herz of Cardozo, Kathleen Morris of Golden Gate, Clayton Gillette of NYU, and Rick Su of Buffalo – courtesy of our lawyers at Reese Richman.  Our brief is clearly having an impact on framing the litigation, as evidenced by the city’s response to amici, and the soda industry’s.
