Following a FREE showing of the award winning movie, “Hot Coffee” hosted by the Saltwater Unitarian Church and the Washington State Association for Justice in Des Moines, WA on Saturday, March, 24, 2012 at 6:30 p.m., attorney Roxanne Eberle will facilitate a Q&A period to discuss the film and the issues it raises.
The Washington Post says, “Hot Coffee” is “Stunning…sends audiences out of the theater thinking in a brand new way.”
“Is justice being served?”
Seinfeld mocked it. Letterman ranked it in his top ten list. And more than fifteen years later, its infamy continues. Everyone knows the McDonald’s coffee case. It has been routinely cited as an example of how citizens have taken advantage of America’s legal system, but is that a fair rendition of the facts?Hot Coffee 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.
After seeing this film, you will decide who really profited from spilling hot coffee.
The Saltwater Unitarian Church is located at 25701 14th Place South Des Moines, WA 98198. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
