They were serving their coffee at 180-190 degrees to keep the coffee fresher for longer. This would produce 3rd degree burns that required skin graphs in as little as 2 seconds. Not a normal 'ouch I got burned' like you prolly would think.
But she still SPILLED THE COFFEE ON HERSELF!!. Now if the McD's employee had dropped it on her as he handed it through her window or the cup was so hot that it caused her to spill it then yeah sue McDonalds.

While I don't drink coffee myself, EVERYONE I know that does wants it to be HOT! when they get it.
