1. The “Hot Coffee” lawsuit between Stella Liebeck and McDonald’s is one of the most well-known American lawsuits around the world. In short: Ms. Liebeck spilled a McDonald’s coffee on herself and suffered burns, so she sued McDonald’s for her injuries. Most people don’t know details beyond that and write Ms. Liebeck off as a clumsy and money hungry old woman. However, did you know that this coffee was at a scalding 190 degrees? A good 50 degree above what most restaurants serve it at? Ms. Liebeck suffered third-degree burns on her legs, groin, and abdomen. And it wasn’t only Ms. Liebeck. There had been over 700 complaints filed against McDonald’s for similar injuries that McDonald’s settled and swept under the rug without changing their heating policies. When Ms. Liebeck approached asking the billion dollar conglomerate for a mere 800 dollars, they refused. This lead to the lawsuit that resulted in huge negative publicity for McDonald’s and a jury ordered settlement of 2.7 million dol
2. Companies often work together to create products and campaigns that are mutually beneficial and provide profits to each company. This is legal. What’s not legal, though, is conspiring to “fix” prices or create a monopoly over certain products. This is what brought a lawsuit against Apple by the United States Department of Justice. The DOJ alleges that Apple met and conspired with CEOs of large publishing companies. They decided to raise (and fix) the prices of e-books in order to get an edge up over Amazon, one of Apple’s top competitors. In business law, it’s illegal to create a monopoly or a “trust” over a product. By conspiring with publishers, the DOJ alleges they were creating a “trust” and were “price-fixing”. Both of these practices go against United States business law. Apple lost and was forced to pay over 400 million dollarsin fines to repay ebook purchasers who overpaid because of Apple’s illegal actions.
