This marks one of dozens of scandals that has plagued one of the most widely known fast food restaurant chains in the world, and it was all over a cup of coffee that proved too hot to handle.

She sued the corporation accusing McDonald’s of telling it’s stores to serve beverages at dangerous temperatures. She initially won
$2.9 million, but the fee was later reduced to $640,000, but not before gaining national attention.
