McDonalds didn't lose this because they spilled coffee on an old lady. There
were numerous compaints to the govt about the ungodly hot temperature of
McDonalds coffee and it came out tha McDonalds did this to keep the smell
of coffee in the restuarants longer. They were told to knock it off. They
didn't. After this incident with the old lady the detritus hit the fan and
they were severely penalized. Some would say they deserved this.
A lot of these unreasonbale stories start sounding reaosnable once you've
heard all the facts of the matter - which you won't in the popular press.
