Ice Mocha Mishap

Man Sues Coffee Shop for Ice Mocha Mishap
August 26, 2002 - Michigan, USA

After spilling an iced coffee beverage onto his lap while driving from a local coffee shop drive-through a Michigan man is now suing the shop for $800,000 in damages and mental anguish.

The man claimed it was a "traumatic experience" that has negatively altered his life in many ways. He claims that he was unaware of the frigid temperature of his Ice Mocha or he would have taken better precautions with handling the beverage.

The coffee shop owner said during our interview, "Anyone who doesn't know the temperature of a drink that has the word 'ice' in its name has much more important things to worry about than a moment of discomfort due to his own negligence. He sustained no physical harm, there were no damages to his vehicle or possessions except a brown stain on his pants, which I am sure is something he is used to."

  2. Of course it's someone from Michigan; we know how to find the worst aspect of every situation.

  6. Amazing what people sue about. Good luck to that guy. Too funny. And we wonder why lawyers cost so much. Take care and great sailing to you and your hubby Sandee. Hope it is a fun week end.

  12. That was from 2002 so probably about the same time as the other idiot spilled HOT coffee that was clearly labeled on herself, right?

    That particular lawsuit still sticks in my craw! The jury should have been the one to have to pay that woman the damages that they awarded to her!

  14. I've read a bunch of the background about the hot coffe lawsuit - and the victim actually had some really solid points.

    But iced coffee? That's beyond silly.

    Have a good day!

  16. even though it's a joke the sad part is that too many stupid things like this actually make it in to a court room. They should be telling these people to suck it up and get over it :)

  19. This whole suing thing has gotten so outta hand. So often it's a case of people not taking responsibility for their own actions as it's too easy to blame your own foolishness on others instead of accepting the consequences of personal stupidity. If the courts weren't so lax in awarding many stupid claims years ago we may not have the situation that exists today.

  20. I spilled hot soup on my lap at a restaurant a few months back, how much can I sue for that? :P

  21. I think the next time I visit the good old USA I'm going to be spilling a lot of hot and cold drinks on myself and ending up rich.

    The ice coffee guy is a real joker...
