If this was your family member, I’m sorry. Trying to go off of memory from 25+ years ago, good luck with that! I was merely pointing out what a lot of people considered a frivolous lawsuit and applied it to this thread. I’m a teacher and at the time I was typing my original response, I had a class of 35-40 5-6 year olds screaming as they came in my gym. I didn’t have time to research and refresh my memory. If I had, I wouldn’t have mentioned that lawsuit and would’ve just stayed with the lawsuit that I served as jury foreman for against Hardee’s. My apologies if I offended you.
I wasn't doubling down on it. I suck at gambling!! Adding the link to the suit was more of a "hey, you were right. I totally forgot the specifics of that case." I don't always articulate things as well on here as I would in person.
more than scalded. She had full third degree burns to her legs and genitals. Yes, coffee is supposed to be hot, but that was ridiculous. Until you get into to burn unit stuff, third degree is the deepest burn you can get. Full thickness. (As a firefighter, I have wound up in the E/R twice in 26 years from burn injuries. Only once was it third degree. Its horrible, and the burn debridement process was more painful than the burns. The victim and her daughter did not want to sue. They only wanted McDonald's to cover her medical cost. They refused.
The reason I linked the article was that after I read it and "refreshed my memory" I saw that the burns were that severe. Again, going off of memory to something that happened 25+ years ago to someone I don't know and across the country as well. I thought I would link it to help others as well.
I think this part of the story isn't being remembered correctly as well. The Health Department doesn't have rules or regulations on hot liquids and their holding temperatures. If there are no regulations in place how could they be "dinged?"
McDonald's had around 700 complaints around the country that their coffee had caused burns and/or was too hot. They deemed that insignificant compared to the number of cups of coffee they had sold during the same timeframe. Not that particular store, the entire country.
While the guys I know are Bama fans they still are part of Georgia coaching circles... There's a growing attitude shift toward Kirby right now.
I'm aware of how well he continues to recruit. The point of mentioning in state signees and Georgia coaching circles goes to a greater point.
