McDonald’s super-hot coffee lands company in court again3/25/2012
Once again, someone is looking to burn McDonald's in court over its hot, hot coffee. A Chicago woman is suing the Golden Arches after her granddaughter suffered second-degree burns from the fast-food chain's joe; according to the suit, the woman had asked her granddaughter to throw away the empty cup, which the 4-year-old instead had refilled at the counter from a fresh pot. The suit alleges the Chicago-area McDonald's both violated its policy of not serving coffee to minors and failed to secure the lid, which caused the hot java to burn the little girl's chest when it spilled.
Does McDonald’s need to pay up?
