A favorite whipping boy of the medical industrial complex is the alleged wave of lawsuits that need to be squashed for freedom to reign once more in America. Now, a new documentary airing on HBO exposes the truth behind so-called “tort reform.”
The documentary is called “Hot Coffee” — after the infamous case of spilled McDonald’s coffee that turns out to have a lot more merit, and a far more serious injury, than the Chamber of Commerce would like the public to realize.
The documentary airs Monday, June 27th at 9 pm EDT on HBO. It’s done by trial lawyer Susan Saladoff, former DC resident who now practices in Oregon. Check it out.
Here’s a good preview piece in the New York Times.
