Associated Press quotes Professor Steven Goldberg on court’s decision regarding NYC sugary drink ban

After State Supreme Court Justice Milton Tingling struck down New York City’s ban on large-size sugary drinks, the Associated Press spoke with Professor Steven Goldberg.

Reporter Jennifer Peltz referenced her interview with Prof. Goldberg saying, “Government actions generally enjoy some leeway in courts in light of the separation of powers. But judges tend to afford less deference to the decisions of executive agencies than to the majoritarian work of legislatures – in this scenario, the City Council, said Steven Goldberg, a Pace Law School professor and former dean.”

The article received wide distribution. The version that ran in the Huffington Post is available here.
