The new documentary movie, Hot Coffee-“Is justice being served?”, seeks to dispel the myth surrounding the famous McDonald’s coffee burn case.  In Hot Coffee, producer, Carly Hugo and director, Susan Saladoff, have created a film that focuses on educating the audience about litigation and the United States civil justice system.  More often it is large corporations and insurance companies who are responsible for educating (or misinforming) socienty and influencing public opinion.  In Hot Coffee, Susan Saladoff, Carly Hugo and everyone else involved in the creation of this film seek to better inform the audience of the propaganda that goes on within the American civil justice system by using one of the most well-known American civl lawsuits, the McDonald’s coffee case, as an example.  The movie will focus on the specific facts of the McDonald’s coffee burn case to illustrate how insurance compaies and large corporation skew the facts in their favor to forward their political agendas with items such as tort reform.  I have not yet seen the movie, but I plan to as soon as screenings begin again in 2010.
