HOT COFFEE premiers

June 27, 2011


HOT COFFEE examines the dangers of so-called "tort reform" and its threat to our civil justice system. Using the now-infamous legal battle over a spilled cup of McDonald's coffee as a springboard, the film follows four people, including McDonald's plaintiff Stella Liebeck, whose lives have been affected by their inability to access the courts, and examines the role of corporations and a complicit media in promoting "tort reform." Directed by former trial lawyer and first-time filmmaker Susan Saladoff.
