The lawyer claims people misunderstand the details of the case. I don’t think I do. Summary:
1. People want hot coffee
2. McDonalds was following an industry standard for coffee temperature
3. This lady orders a cup of coffee
4. She has an accident and spills it on herself
5. She wants McDonald’s to pay part of her medical bills
6. She sues and wins
I think public perception is right on. I think the family just doesn’t like it and the New York Times wanted to beat up on Newt and the Republicans.
