They tried this in NJ and the law was withdrawn when the tobacco companies sued (the town did not have the funds to fight it out in Court). I am curious what will happen in NYC where the pockets are deeper for such legal battles. How much is Bloomberg willing to spend to get his way? Same as his continuing battle to win the soda restriction? Seriously, Bloomberg will shovel money at his pet projects and endless Court battles, but does nothing to elevate the real issues of the city (e.g. the public school bus transportation strike, etc.).
