    I love the idea of people filing frivolous lawsuits being fined. Lawyers who file frivolous lawsuits should have their license revoked. If only those judges were around when that idiot decided to sue because she was dumb enough to place a cup of hot liquid between her legs.

For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

Its because that twit and her greedy ambulance chaser winning that frivolous lawsuits that paved the way for lard asses suing fast food because they ate one too many cheeseburgers and got fat and why manufactures have to greedy ambulance chasing rat lawyer proof everything by putting obvious warnings on package like caution sharp on a box of razors or warning contains peanuts on a jar of peanut butter.

    Yes don't let the facts like you don't put a cup of liquid anything between your legs get in your way. Don't let the fact that the coffee was stored around at optimum temperature before being served get in your way either.

    How To Brew Coffee - National Coffee Association
    Brewed coffee should be enjoyed immediately!

    Pour it into a warmed mug or coffee cup so that it will maintain its temperature as long as possible. Brewed coffee begins to lose its optimal taste moments after brewing so only brew as much coffee as will be consumed immediately. If it will be a few minutes before it will be served, the temperature should be maintained at 180 - 185 degrees Fahrenheit.

    You seem to think I'm going to waste my time correcting you, don't you?

    Have someone read the link I posted to you before again posting. It may help to keep you from posting more idiocy ... maybe.

    Actually, IMHO, James is right on this one. Seems that the judge agrees with James too, since he reduced the amount of the damages the jury handed out. Still, and again, IMHO, there should have been no lawsuit, since Mrs. Liebeck, the plaintiff, was negligent in the handling of the coffee, and spilled it on her lap.

    Interestingly enough, similar lawsuits against McDonald's in England have failed. These were against the hot tea that is served in restaurants there. In these lawsuits, it was established that, in order to make tea, water must be boiled, which means a temperature of 212 degrees F, much higher than the 180 degrees McDonald's brews its tea in the United States.

    So, accordingly, I have to side with JamesRage on this one. America is a nation that is litigation crazy.

    I read it. It doesn't change the fact that the temperature at which McDonald's maintains the temperature of coffee is considered optimal. Our coffee maker at home (my wife drinks it, not me) maintains the coffee at 85 degrees C (about 185 F) and a popular coffee chain here is called 85 Degrees (I think there are even more outlets of that chain here than even Starbucks).

    How many people in the drive thru actually drink the coffee immediately upon it being given to you? Furthermore, it is VERY common in a drive thru for the coffee to be in the cup for 1-3 minutes prior to it being presented to the customer. It is incumbant on the customer to exercuse due care with any product being presented to him/her through a drive thru window.

    It's unimportant to liberals whether a person is born here to gain the privileges of regular citizens. If nothing else they can become useful Democrat voters. Even the dead can vote Democrat. So even though Obama is a citizen, it wouldn't matter if he wasn't. Liberals still believe that he should be allowed to be president simply because they want him to be.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.
