By David Yates | Jul 10, 2019


BEAUMONT – McDonald’s may be known for serving up fast food, but it also seems the chain also has a reputation for continuing to be served lawsuits for its hot coffee.

Seeking up to $200,000 in damages, Johnny Cooper filed suit against B.G. Foods, doing business as McDonald’s, on June 27 in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the lawsuit, On Aug. 1, 2017, Cooper was dining at a Beaumont McDonald’s when an employee “dropped an extremely hot cup of coffee” in his lap while delivering his order.

Cooper alleges the restaurant failed to safeguard him from “reckless behavior and serving practices.”

Cooper is suing for his past and future mental anguish, pain, impairment, loss of earning capacity and medical expenses.

Beaumont attorney Jonathan Juhan represents him.

Judge Kent Walston, 58th District Court, is assigned to the case.

Case No. A-204028
