That's actually one of the few times that I agreed with the lawsuit.

I used to work in a cafe and it's stupid to serve coffee that hot as it's too hot to even hold normally without extra napkins around the paper cup or whatever. Doesn't help McDonald's case that they've received similar complaints in the past and they just ignored them even after accepting the fact that they are a burn hazard. Sure, she was dumb for putting the cup between her legs, but it wouldn't have been any different if someone just bumped into her and made her spill it on herself.

Point still stands on everything else though.
