New DVD: Hot Coffee!

We’ve all heard people point to the McDonald’s spilled coffee suit (Liebeck v. McDonald’s Restaurants) as evidence for tort reform. In the recently released documentary Hot Coffee, first-time filmmaker and former public interest lawyer Susan Saladoff looks into the facts behind this and three other cases to show that the civil justice system is not filled with the “frivolous” lawsuits conventional wisdom would have you believe. You can watch the filmmaker talk about the film on The Colbert Report.
