McDonald's Hot Coffee Lawsuit

Written by Gabrielle Little


Willimantic, Conn. -The J. Eugene Smith Library at Eastern Connecticut State University will host a screening of the documentary, "Hot Coffee," during Eastern's University Hour at 1:30 p.m. on Sept. 19 in the Student Center Theatre. The public is invited. Admission is free.
 
According to the documentary's website, the film reveals what really happened to Stella Liebeck, the Albuquerque woman who spilled coffee on herself and sued McDonald's, while exploring how and why the case garnered so much media attention; who funded the effort; and to what end.

A panel discussion featuring two Connecticut trial lawyers, Attorneys Michael Walsh, Lincoln Woodard, along with Brian Levy, president of Eastern's Pre-Law Society, will follow the screening.
