ST. CLOUD, MN (KNSI) - If you every thought you should sue a big company for damages -- or if you just want to see a talked-about documentary, KNSI and Bradshaw and Bryant Law Office have the perfect evening for you.

Join us at Pioneer Place tonight at 7p.m. for a screening of the film "Hot Coffee," a controversial examination of tort reform in America, particularly the infamous 1994 case of Stella Liebeck.

Liebeck sued McDonalds after suffering third-degree burns in 1992 after a scalding hot cup of the restaurant's coffee fell into her lap. She eventually won a settlement of approximately $500,000 after claiming the restaurant's coffee was too hot.

That movie looks at the use -- and misuse -- of that case as a publicity instrument to change product liability lawsuits nationwide.

Admission to the event is free and the first 50 people to attend will receive a complimentary DVD of "Hot Coffee." Refreshments will also be served.
