NY woman takes Starbucks to court over spilled coffee at airport
New York resident Jessica Pyne filed a lawsuit against coffeehouse chain Starbucks Corp. in the Harris County 215th District Court on October 12, 2016. In the lawsuit, the plaintiff is alleging that she suffered burns to the lower half of her body when a barista spilled a hot cup of coffee on her in the Starbucks at the George Bush International Airport.
According to Pyne’s lawsuit, she was at a stopover at the Bush Airport on October 13, 2014, when she got off her plane and went to the airport Starbucks to buy a coffee. She then claimed the barista managed to spill a cup of hot coffee on her lower extremities, burning her legs, ankles, and feet. Pyne also claims the Starbucks management did not extend any form of assistance or remuneration to her after the incident.
