An northeast Ohio judge has sided with the city of Cleveland in its lawsuit challenging a state law that prohibits cities from banning restaurants from selling food made with trans fat.

The Cuyahoga county judge ruled the law was an illegal attempt to stop cities from exercising home rule.

The Ohio Attorney General’s Office says it’s reviewing the ruling.
