StreetlightInTheGhetto: Strongbeerrules: Reminds me of the "Macdonald's coffee was too hot" lawsuit.Do people still not effing realize that wasn't entirely a frivolous lawsuit?agh/jury found her 20% at fault//but McDonald's was STILL heating their coffee to unsafe temperatures///Further, McDonalds' quality assurance manager testified that the company actively enforces a requirement that coffee be held in the pot at 185 degrees, plus or minus five degrees. He also testified that a burn hazard exists with any food substance served at 140 degrees or above, and that McDonalds coffee, at the temperature at which it was poured into styrofoam cups, was not fit for consumption because it would burn the mouth and throat. The quality assurance manager admitted that burns would occur, but testified that McDonalds had no intention of reducing the "holding temperature" of its coffee.
Gyrfalcon: This can't be real!This is an old bar exam hypo!Seriously, the exam hypo has to do with a shopkeeper's liability after a customer slips on a squashed banana. The answer always is it goes to the jury.
