Please join us for an exciting opportunity on Thursday, April 24, at 4:00 p.m., to watch Hot Coffee. This 2011 documentary film discusses the impact of tort reform on our federal judicial system. It is directed by Susan Saladoff, a medical malpractice attorney. The film premiered on January 2011 at Sundance Film Festival, and later appeared on HBO as part of a series on documentaries. The title is derived from the Liebeck v. McDonald’s Restaurants lawsuit in which the plaintiff, Stella Liebeck, was severely burned after spilling hot coffee into her lap. She purchased the coffee from a McDonald’s.
The film is 90 minutes long, and will be followed by a short discussion session. Paralegal Studies students will earn two LEX hours for attending this event. Mark your calendars now! It will be interesting and educational!
This event is co-sponsored by Student Life’s Living Leadership Program and Paralegal Club.
