LOS ANGELES , January 14, 2013 () – According to an attorney for the city, New York City's Board of Health will delay for at least 90 days enforcement of the beverage ban the city passed in 2012, the National Restaurant Association (NRA) reported Jan. 10.

The ban was expected to begin March 12, but the city will postpone enforcement until June. The mandate would prohibit restaurants, delis, stadiums and arenas, concession stands and food carts from selling sugar-sweetened beverages in containers above 16 ounces. Banned beverages include soda, sweetened iced tea, some smoothies, coffee drinks and lemonade.

The attorney made the announcement during a Jan. 8 in-chambers conference related to a lawsuit filed in New York State Supreme Court that is contesting the legality of the ban. The court also announced a two-week delay in the hearing on the ban until Jan. 23.
