Watch Hot Coffee
- 1 hr 26 min
This 2011 documentary concerns itself with tort reform, taking viewers on a journey to understand the modern history of laws concerning lawsuits against large corporations, and the legal system that continues to protect those companies. The film's title comes from the famous case of Liebeck vs. McDonald's Restaurants, covered at great length here, where a woman was award millions after being burned by a to-go cup of McDonald's coffee. As the filmmakers take a look at legal pushes for further tort reform, viewers are asked if multi-million-dollar lawsuits really do anything to protect consumers from the corporations that often ignore the public's best interests.
