Background information: Everyone has heard of the infamous McDonald’s coffee lawsuit. It is often cited as an example of the problems in our legal system, but is it a fair assessment? The award winning film Hot Coffee reveals what really happened to Stella Liebeck, the Albuquerque grandmother who spilled coffee on herself and sued McDonald’s, while exploring the media frenzy that ensued. The film, which was directed by attorney Susan Saladoff, also analyzes and discusses the impact of tort reform on the United States judicial system. The film premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival on January 24, 2011, and later aired on HBO on June 27, 2011 as a part of HBO films documentary summer series.
