Civil Justice System and Tort Reform
You may have heard the story of the woman who spilled hot coffee on herself and later sued McDonald’s.
Odds are that you don’t know the full story behind the case or that the 79 year old Plaintiff, Stella Liebeck, suffered Third Degree Burns as a result of spilling that cup of coffee that required years of medical treatment. Hot Coffee is a great new film that discusses some of the popular myths about the civil justice system and how big business has created an unfair playing field for individuals like you and me.
The film has received numerous awards from film festivals across the country and can be seen in local theaters and on HBO. Below is the link to the movie website where you can get more information and find out when it is airing in your area:
