Have you ever ‘quoted’ ‘facts’ about the McDonald’s coffee case from years and years ago? You know the one, it basically made all places that serve coffee put signs up saying ‘Warning HOT coffee’. I’ve joked about it like millions of others, and simply assumed some stupid woman spilled coffee in her lap and sued McDonald’s to get loads of money. After a while I found out that the coffee had actually burned her and was about 120 degrees in the cup.
Well actually, it was 140 degrees or so, and she wasn’t driving and wasn’t trying to get rich off the incident.
Here’s the facts of the case – sometimes the US justice system does do a good job.
