And we all find out he's super crazy when we get here...

"...but in his rambling statement, dude also insinuates that President Obama is conspiring with a local street gang in a diabolical plot against him. So, yeah ....

Let's see, first, the suit will get thrown out. This idiot will pay for any costs Tebow would have to incur. The lawyer should be disbarred, then tarred and feathered.

By telling everyone that "T-Bo sucks", he is committing a sin. The Ten Commandments specifically states that he is not to take the Lord's name in vain. So...this guy is going to hell...

The sad truth is he will probably win. I mean for gods sake a lady bought coffee at Mdc's, was driving her car while drinking it and spilled it on herself and sued them for 3 million and won. ( I am not sure on the amount anymore but you get my point )

slip and fall lawyers are the worst. some truck driver lady wasn't being careful and slipped and fell while making a delivery at a Walmart in CO and just got awarded $15M. i hope they fight it. it's absurd. it really has become like a lottery ticket for the underclass in this country... and by underclass, i mean the type of people who either 1) watch Jerry Springer, and/or 2) have been on Jerry Springer.

That was a legit case though, even though it doesn't sound like it:

The plaintiff and the spill incident. The plaintiff, a 79-year-old grandmother named Stella Liebeck, was not driving, nor was the vehicle moving when the injury occurred. While the car was stopped, Mrs. Liebeck, who was sitting in the passenger seat, tried to hold the coffee cup between her knees as she removed the lid. The cup tipped over, spilling the contents into her lap.

The injury. Mrs. Liebeck’s injury was anything but trivial. The scalding-hot coffee caused third-degree burns over 16% of her body, including her genital area. She had to be hospitalized for eight days. She required extensive skin grafts and was permanently scarred. She was disabled for a period of two years. During the ensuing trial, Mrs. Liebeck’s physician testified that her injury was one of the worst cases of scalding he’d ever seen.

The coffee. At the time, McDonalds’ corporate specifications explicitly called for coffee to be served at a temperature between 180 and 190 degrees Fahrenheit. An expert witness testified that liquids at this temperature will cause third degree burns of human skin in two to seven seconds. (Coffee served at home is typically 135 to 140 degrees.)

McDonalds’ culpability. During discovery, McDonald’s was required to produce corporate documents of similar cases. More than 700(!) claims had been made against McDonald’s, and many of the victims had suffered third-degree burns similar to Mrs. Liebeck’s. Yet the company had refused to change its policy, supposedly because a consultant had recommended the high temperature as a way to maintain optimum taste. Some have speculated that the real reason for the high temperature was to slow down consumption of the coffee, reducing the demand for free refills.

Greed? Despite the pain caused by her injury, and the lengthy and expensive treatments she required, Mrs. Liebeck originally offered to settle with McDonald’s for $20,000. The corporation offered her a mere $800, so the case went to trial.

---------------------------

So, yeah...

Excellent post Rev. I always wondered about the real story behind the oft referred to legend. It puts it in perspective. Seems to me based on this her claims were legit and reasonable. Not that all claims are of course.

She bought hot coffee
She used her knees to hold the cup and started messing with the lid
She spilled the coffee on herself.

Stupid Stupid stupid.

I think the point that jumps out to me is 3rd degree burns. Do you know that means permanent irreversible tissue and nerve damage? Nobody should endure permanent tissue and nerve damage from a spilled cup of coffee.

It's not about the spill. It's about the fact she was handed a paper cup full of molten liquid.
