The Albuquerque McDonalds Hot Coffee Lawsuit Revisited

The New York Times Video “Scalded by Coffee, Then News Media” looks at how the facts were misrepresented in the 1994 “Liebeck v. McDonald’s Restaurants” lawsuit.

In 1992, Stella Liebeck spilled scalding McDonald’s coffee in her lap and later sued the company, attracting a flood of negative attention. It turns out there was more to the story.

The McDonalds restaurant is still at 5001 Gibson Boulevard S.E, Albuquerque, NM.
