This case is also know as the McDonald’s coffee case. It happened back in 1992. The regular McDonald’s customer Stella Liebeck went there to get a 49-cent coffee from the Drive-Throuhg window. She was on the passenger seat of her grandson’s car. When he pulled over to get some cream she put the cup between her knees (his cat didn’t have a cup holders). When she removed the lid she spilled the coffee all over her lap. She was wearing cotton sweatpants (they absorbed the coffee and held it against her skin). According to her lawyer the coffee was way too hot (about 180–190 °F (82–88 °C)). On the trial they demanded that the coffee should have never been server hotter than 140°F. Liebecks lawyers proved that such amount of coffee served at 180-190°F can cause 3rd degree burn in 7 seconds and the jury decided to penalize McDonald’s for two days’ worth of coffee revenues, which is approximetely $2.7 million. Anyway she decided not to take all the money, but only to cover her medical bills instead.
