Judge strikes down NYC
ban on supersized sodas ,, a

Bloomberg's drink
regulation defeated by
N.Y. Supreme Court
NEW YORK (AP) - A judge
struck down New York City's
pioneering ban on big sug-
ary drinks Monday just hours
before it was supposed to take
effect, handing a defeat to
health-minded Mayor Michael
Bloomberg and creating confu-

sion for restaurants that had
already ordered smaller cups
and changed their menus.
State Supreme Court Jus-
tice Milton Tingling said the
16-ounce limit on sodas and
other sweet drinks arbitrarily
applies to only some sugary bev-
erages and some places that sell
"The loopholes in this rule
effectively defeat the stated
purpose of this rule," Tingling
wrote in a victory for the bev-

and other business groups

In addition, the judge said the
Bloomberg-appointed Board of
Health intruded on City Coun-
cil's authority when it imposed
the rule.
The city vowed to appeal the
decision, issued by New York
state's trial-level court.
"We believe the judge is
totally in error in how he inter-
preted the law, and we are con-
fident we will win on appeal,"
Bloomberg said. He added: "One
of the cases we will make is that
people are dying every day. This
is not a joke. Five thousand peo-
ple die of obesity every day in

sigh of relief to New Yorkers and
thousands of small businesses
in New York City that would
have been harmed by this arbi-
trary and unpopular ban," the
American Beverage Associa-
tion and other opponents said,
adding that the organization
is open to other "solutions that
will have a meaningful and last-
ing impact."
The first of its kind in the
country, the restriction has
sparked reaction from city
streets to late-night talk shows,

attempt to improve people's
health and derided by others as

Opposition leader Henrique Capriles speaks during a press conference in Caracas, Venezuela on Friday. Capriles called Vice
President Nicolas Maduro a bold-faced liar and accuses him of using Hugo Chavez's funeral to campaign for the presidency.
Chavez's successor files for
presidential election run


accuses Maduro of
politicizing former
president's death
CARACAS (AP) - Thousands
of cheering, crying admirers
accompanied President Hugo
Chavez's hand-picked successor
Monday as he registered to be
a candidate to replace the dead
leader, while forcing the main
opposition candidate to delay his
entry into the race.
The massive crowd thronged
acting President Nicolas Maduro
and blocked opposition candidate
Henrique Capriles from register-
ing for the April 14 vote by the 2
p.m. deadline.
The Capriles campaign told
The Associated Press that an
aide registered for the candidate
at the election commission later
Monday afternoon.
Maduro also announced a
change in Chavez's final resting
place Monday, and the informa-
tion ministry later said that offi-
cials had not decided what will
happen to the late president's
Last week, Maduro had said
the body would be embalmed

and perpetually displayed in the
country's military museum.
Thousands applauded from a
plaza outside the National Elec-
tion Commission, waving ban-
ners and holding up posters of
Chavez as Maduro registered.
Many wore the red shirts and
baseball caps of Chavez's rul-
ing Socialist Party, letting out a
loud cheer when acting President
Nicolas Maduro arrived to sign
his election papers.
Some cried as Maduro saluted
them from the building's balcony,
eulogizing Chavez once again as
Venezuela's "father redeemer"
and asking God to give him "the
wisdom to allow me to carry out
the orders he gave us."
Later, he launched into a
speech of more than two hours
in the plaza outside the building,
introducinghis longtime partner,
Attorney General Cilia Flores,
and their children and grandchil-
dren to the crowd.
"I am not Chavez, but I am his
son, and all of us together, the
people, we are Chavez," he said.
Opposition supporters
denounced the carefully stage-
managed event as an affront to
basic electoral fairness. The elec-
toral commission is meant to play
an impartial role ensuring the

vote is fair and free.
Campaigning doesn't official-
ly start until April 2, but already
the two sides are at each other's
Capriles announced his can-
didacy Sunday, while blasting
Chavez's top lieutenants for try-
ing to use the president's death
to stoke passions and tilt the elec-
"You are playing politics with
the president's body," he said,
adding that he wasn't convinced
the government had been hon-
est about when Chavez died, and
had lied to the people during his
long illness by insisting he would
get better. The government says
Chavez succumbed to cancer on
Tuesday after a nearly two-year
battle. It has offered almost no
clinical information.
Capriles previously called
Maduro a shameless liar and
referred to him condescendingly
as "boy."
Maduro appeared right after
Capriles on state TV on Sunday,
accusing "the losing, miserable
candidate" of defaming Chavez
andhis family. He called Capriles
a "fascist" who was trying to pro-
voke violence by insulting the
"crystalline, pure image of Com-
mander Chavez."
