Any time you find yourself in an argument about frivolous lawsuits and tort reform, someones probably going to bring up that woman who sued McDonalds over the hot coffee and won four ba-jillion dollars in damages. The popular version of the story has a little something for everyone: a stalwart national company, the apparently absurd premise that someone would object to coffee being served hot, and a cash settlement that was large enough to be memorable.
I never knew the details of this case until I read this, thank you for posting Matthew. And it was written perfectly, no glaring misuse of the word "however," and that's pretty rare. So good job Ethan Trex, I'm impressed.
