If you are that diabetic, you really can't even be in that place. Mom had to quit making jellies and jams, the sugar in the air would set off her sugar. Donut places would be just as bad.

Just wait until someone allergic to coffee sues because there was coffee in their coffee.

That really wouldn't surprise me.

Not long ago I remember a couple was trying to sue a restaurant at Disney because the cheese on the nachos was "too hot", and burned their sons mouth. Hello, the cheese has to be melted to pour it over the chips. Might want to make sure it's cool before digging in.

Remember some years ago, when another idiot sued a fast food chain because she was hurt when she spilled her drive-thru cup of coffee in her lap as she drove off? She claimed that she didn't know the coffee would be hot!
Sheesh!

Perhaps you should read the facts of the case.

Actually, the woman was a passenger and the car was parked. By the time they decided to settle out of court, the jury already dropped the maximum to $600k. That was much less than the $2m that was bandied around. And the only reason the figure went that high was because of the games the 2 lawyers were playing with each other. Each time the one lawyer refused to settle, the other raised the amount. They could have settled with the women in the beginning. The coffee was 195 degrees. She had to have skin grafts down there. It was not nearly as much her fault as many claimed. The popular perception of the incident had little to do with reality.

There have been much better examples of frivolous lawsuits like the woman who tripped over her own toddler in a store, got seriously injured from that, sued the place of business, and won!

There have even been frivolous claims made by defendants in criminal court. For instance, one man told the judge the murder charge was unconstitutional because he murdered the guy in private and the court was violating his privacy rights. Then there was the kid who murdered his parents and then asked for leniency because he was an orphan.

The site is slanted to the left, but I agree with the coffee account as legitimate. It is also in Wikipedia. It was nothing like what most people believe.

Oh dear. It wasn't all that important. Not to have to explain anyway.
Who were you last known as? I think I may have seen you on quite a few other threads.
