Quick-service and bang-for-your-buck deals are no longer the name of the game in the fast food industry.

A Houston woman plans to sue Starbucks after she burned herself with her coffee. The lawsuit says that Katherine Mize purchased coffee for herself and coworkers at a local Starbucks. When she pulled up to the drive-thru to receive her 20 oz. cup, she claims that the barista — who was in the first week of her employment — squeezed the cup as she handed it to her. The lid was then dislodged and scalding coffee spilled onto Mize. She plans to sue both the barista and Starbucks for a plethora of failures, for which she seeks between $200,000 and $1 million to cover past and future damages.
