Digital Presentation - Filmmaker Susan Saladoff directs this documentary that examines the case of Liebeck v. McDonald's Restaurants the so-called "hot coffee lawsuit" in which a woman sued the fast-food giant after she spilled her coffee and burned herself. Looking past the scathing negative publicity of the trial, Saladoff examines the insidious reasons why McDonald's invested heaps of money to sway public opinion against the plaintiff.
