Everyone has heard about the "McDonald's Coffee" case. Opponents of the jury trial system claim it is the ultimate "frivolous lawsuit," and many comedians have made fun of the case. A new documentary movie called "Hot Coffee" reveals what really happened. The truth will surprise you. Arm yourself with the facts about Stella Liebeck, her injuries, and her case and then ask yourself whether the claim of "frivolous lawsuit" is fair. The next time someone tells you a case is "frivolous," ask them about the facts and how much they know about the case. When you get all the facts, the claim of "frivolous lawsuit" very often melts away in the light of the truth.
