Check your personal responsibility at the door. That’s what one Florida woman did, and now she’s 100-grand richer.
The woman successfully sued Starbucks after she spilled hot coffee in her lap. Her lawyers said the ‘bucks should have told her the coffee cup lids could come off. Excuse me?!
When the hell are we going to grow up and start acting like adults in this country? I remember when the first ‘hot coffee lawsuit’ happened. That was 1992. It was asinine then, and it’s asinine today.
Junk lawsuits hurt us all – not only with the impending excessive and unnecessary product warnings, but moreover with inflated retail prices that lead to customer loss that leads to worker layoffs.
