She may have discovered it was defective after receiving it, burning herself, and identifying the cause.

I'm a defective tea cup, bent up lip.


You couldn't find a two-syllable synonym for "defective"?

Dented, deformed, jacked-up... Even "Timmy's" would have worked.

I love how local news sites still think that only locals will ever look at their site. They NEVER even show what country they're in let alone state/province and city.

Tim Horton's cups are pretty bad. It's highly unlikely to be walking with a cup and not have coffee drip down the cup. You can set it down, press down on the lid to make sure it's secure, wipe up the drips and it will still drip.

It might be the seam issue. They all are affected by it. Basically where the lip overlaps itself will cause the top to be pushed out a bit so coffee can make it past the seal.

Easiest solution is to position the coffee lid opening on the opposite side of the cup

No, she's not asking for $75,000.  She's asking for as much as a jury will give her.  The $75,000 is in there because it's the minimum amount in controversy for federal court jurisdiction, unless you have an issue of federal law (which you generally don't in a personal injury case).  If she claimed she was seeking $74,999, the case would be dismissed from federal court at the outset.

Now you know why so many people seem to sue for $75,000.

No, she's suing for a lot more.  She just has to say that she's suing for at least $75K so the complaint doesn't get dismissed at the outset.

You could.  But it would be mocked.   Really, I'm just describing what lawyers actually do in federal court, based on a couple of decades of experience.  You can believe it, or not believe it, I don't really care.  It's just how it's done.

I get that you're trolling.  But if you ever do need a real lawyer, shut the fark up and pay attention to what they tell you.

Well no. It's trolling if it's not true. She filed for 75K. If I have a lawyer, I'll trust what they say over some guy mumbling that she didn't file for 75K when it's in the court documents.
