The McDonald's coffee case has been routinely cited as an example of how citizens have taken advantage of America's legal system, but is that a fair rendition of the facts? Hot Coffee reveals what really happened to the woman who spilled coffee on herself in 1992 and sued McDonald's. The filmmaker spent twenty-five years practicing law, representing injured victims of individual and corporate negligence. She includes three other cases to support her position that the aim of "tort reformers" actually is to shield corporations from accountability and responsibility for negligence. A member of the Kansas City Chapter of Move to Amend will help facilitate the discussion.
