An eye opening documentary about the buying of judges. Do you remember the woman who sued McDonald over spilled coffee and won? Did you know she had third degree burns and her doctors said she probably wont make it

    IT'S THE FRIGGIN SYSTEM THAT SUCKS. That woman should NEVER have gotten to court.

    Why not? Do you think McDonald's should have settled to begin with?

    Expecting to be paid for one's clumsiness and poor judgment. We don't do that here. If she was in an auto accident, would she have sued General Motors?

    The coffee spilled after the were park in the parking lot and she received second and third degree burns. She had to have skin graft and spent eight weeks in the Hospital. McDonald's received around 700 complaints(not all in the same year) about the temperature of the coffee. What amount of damage would that temperature do to a mouth?

    I'm sorry but I was taught to test the temperature of something before putting it in my mouth. (Don't go there!). If there were so many complaints, you mean to tell me no one complained to the "authorities" or contacted a reporter? Why on Earth would a business waste energy on superheating their product? Makes no sense to me unless the manager is this guy:

    It was McDonald's policy to heat coffee at that high of a temperature. After the lawsuit they lower it ten degrees.

    Just that particular McDonald's? Or was it a corporate policy? I'm not looking for a fight here, just a chance to modify my opinion if the facts lead that way. I don't mind being wrong, I embrace it as a road to knowledge.

    From the documentary, it sounded like it was a corporate policy.

    Ah, but isn't it logical that a class action suit would have followed with many jumping on the bandwagon? Looks like only the manager there was (is?) a wurst.
    What is to be learned from the issue is "never assume". Never.

    Mcdonald's could have ended it long before the case got to court, she was originally asking for $20,000 to cover her current ans expected future medical cost, they went cheap and offer $800.

    There's no denying that corporations are greedy, nasty entities and good business practices dictate that you don't throw money away but an astute management team should have considered the consequences of their actions. Back in the early 1970s when I lived in your country, that's the way things were done.

    might as well be, they try to practice it anyway.

    If it was going to be a class action suit then McDonald's would have to pay out more if they lost. The plaintiff was not greedy.

    No, 20 grand was certainly reasonable. How much did she end up with?
