I' m pretty sure almost everyone has heard of the $2.7million McDonalds hot coffee law suit.
The bare bones of the story are that a women bought a cup of coffee from McDonalds and it spilt in her lap. She ended up suing McDonalds and was awarded $2.7 million.
The case is probably one of the most widely known and talked about legal stories around.
So. What do people on this forum know/believe about the case ? What are your thoughts now about the legal system ? The jury that awarded these damages ? The media that reported the case ? The person who was burnt ?
Just interested ...
