This is not the first time the customer of a fast-food chain has been burned and then awarded damages. According to the Consumer Attorneys of California:

In 1992, 79-year-old Stella Liebeck bought a cup of takeout coffee at a McDonald’s drive-thru in Albuquerque and spilled it on her lap. She sued McDonald’s and a jury awarded her nearly $3 million in punitive damages for the burns she suffered.

The Liebeck case became a legendary example of how a customer could sue a restaurant, and it continues to be the most famous example of these kinds of incidents.

That case was not the only one filed against McDonald's Corp. (NYSE: MCD). There have been a number of others against it and Starbucks Corp. (NASDAQ: SBUX), including one filed against Starbucks by a police officer in North Carolina in 2012. The jury ruled against him. Starbucks comments about the incident, according to the L.A. Times: "We are pleased with the jury's decision as we believe our partners [employees] did nothing wrong. The safety of our customers and partners will continue to be our top priority."

Starbucks was not as fortunate this time.
