One of the most frustrating things I have ever done as a Plaintiff PI paralegal, was attempting to explain the actual facts surrounding "McDonalds" to people.

When listening to some folks preconceived notions of the "facts" of the case -- and more importantly what those "facts" mean in terms of the civil justice system -- it becomes clear that those ideas are *not* the products of accidents or simple ignorance.

They are the products of relentless and morally bankrupt campaign of misinformation backed by nearly limitless bankrolls to convince people that the civil tort system is not only ethically challenged but an actual existential threat to the Republic and that it should be treated as such.

For our part, we have done a poor job of fighting back against this... and there are a variety of reasons and causes. But movies like "Hot Coffee" are good first step.
