McDonald’s faces another lawsuit over its hot coffee.
Bryce R. MacNaughton of Kensington, Md., is suing in federal court for $2 million, claiming he suffered first-, second- and third-degree burns when coffee spilled in his lap. No hearing date has been set.
MacNaughton says the lid was not secure on the coffee he bought at a drive-through window at a McDonald’s in Lewes.
The restaurant is owned by McDonald’s of Rehoboth Inc. The company referred calls to McDonald’s Corp. in Oak Brook, Ill. McDonald’s spokeswoman Malesia Webb-Dunn said Monday the company could not comment on the suit.
