Starbucks has been ordered to pay a Florida woman $100,000 after she suffered first- and second-degree burns from their coffee, her lawyers announced. Joanne Mogavero, 43, endured permanent scarring after the lid on a venti-sized Pike Place coffee popped off at a Jacksonville drive-thru window in 2014. The slip led to the scalding, 190-degree beverage to pour on her lap, her attorneys said in a statement. The lid “was either not attached properly or was defective,” her lawsuit said, according to a copy that HuffPost obtained.



During trial, a Starbucks representative reportedly testified that the company receives 80 complaints a month about lids coming off and leaking like this. Despite this amount, they said it “would not be relevant” to warn customers of this risk, Mogavero’s lawyers said


seems like a lot of cheddar to me...

defective lids? maybe i suppose

80 complaints a month is not really a lot considering how many cups they sell a day

www.quora.com...


According to a USA Today Article dated 2006, they sell over 4 Million cups of coffee a day. In 10 years time i think it's safe to say you can double that amount with the growth the company has had.



Another article written in 2013 says individual stores sell 1500 cups of coffee per day


i would think if the lid was defective a lot more than 80 of 1500/4,000,000(depending how calculated) would come off.

how can they know it was the clerks fault?
maybe the customer squeezed a little too hard?
maybe the lid was not on all the way and it was the clerk?

seems like 100k is a lot

wonder what the lady was wearing...i could see permanent scars if wearing a dress and it hit bare legs but if it went through clothes i wouldnt think she would have permanent burns

either way the woman is paid.....probably still drinks starbucks


My client didn’t want sympathy from the jury — she wanted justice — and the jury gave it to her with its verdict


nothing says justice like 100 yardsticks

It's quite possible that the burns were on her genitals given where people without cup holders often place their cups. I wouldn't cry for Starbucks, I think they can afford it.

quite possible

if she got a burn on her monkey she should have got at least 200k

maybe starbucks lawyers should have argued she was an idiot for putting scalding coffee between her legs.
most cars have cup holders these days

That is quite a lot of cash and you could be right about her still drinking at Starbucks, after all she did just get a pay out from them, mind you she probably wouldn't want to spend on the place she received from, they might want there money back lol.

B) a defective customer

Right. A person who claims to be an adult burns themselves and than cries so loud that a private business has to pay them is exactly what is wrong with this country.

dude a person can not be responsible for their actions these days

probably put the coffee between her legs to grab her s6 to tweet about her grande mocha latte with stevia and than BAM BITCH.......burns on the monkey

thats a possibility

I disagree. Either don't make your coffee scalding hot or have your idiot employees put the lid on right. They make them learn a new language, the least they could do is have them put the goddamn lids on right. This happened to me at Dunk's once with an ice coffee. It took all of my will power not to punch the kid in the head.

That's the new trend, go to Starbucks and burn your snatch then tweet about it while on the way to court lol.

I was going to start a Go-Fund-Me for making faulty coffee lids so I could be responsible for burning genitals of stupid people.


But once again, someone beat me to it.

Dammit.

Keep in mind water boils at 212 F.

This reminds me of the media campaign against the elderly lady that got her crotch burned by MC'd's coffee. There was way more to the story. Here is a short clip.
