Wasting more of the apparently bottomless well of NYC taxpayer money.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has announced that the city will continue Michael Bloomberg’s fight for a ban on sodas over 16 ounces.

The city will appeal to the state’s highest court in a continuation of the former mayor’s ban. Mr. Bloomberg had ordered the ban through the city Health Department without the city council’s consent, but a state judge in March 2013 blocked the ban and said he had overstepped his authority.
