After weeks of deliberation, a jury sided with the coffee brand.
Today, one man is crying over his spilled coffee. A jury in North Carolina sided with Starbucks in a recent lawsuit between a cop, his spilled coffee, and the coffee giant. According to ABC News, Starbucks will not have the pay for the medical bills nor emotional losses a cop endured after the lid on the cup of his coffee malfunctioned, causing the hot liquid to spill onto his lap and stomach.
Back in March, Lieutenant Matthew Kohr, an officer in the Raleigh police department, said the lid collapsed and “the cup folded in on itself,” causing him third degree burns. Kohr eventually needed “surgery to remove a portion of his intestine.” His wife told the jury that she lost a “source of emotional support, her social companion and her intimate partner.”
