Man Sues Restaurant He Owns After Spilling Hot Coffee on Himself

“Coffee was too hot,” man claims.
A lawsuit was filed recently by a man who wants to sue his own place of business. Bert Hinkle, owner of Bert’s Beanery and Bagel Shop, allegedly spilled coffee on himself while pouring the hot liquid into a cup he was allegedly holding. Mr. Hinkle claims that the diner’s policy of keeping the pot of coffee hot is unfair to those people who don’t like drinking hot beverages. “I know for myself, I like to add just enough milk so I don’t burn the roof of my mouth,” he said. The lawsuit is seeking $500,000 in damages.
When asked about the lawsuit, an attorney for the restaurant, Mr. Louis Silverspoon, said: “This whole thing is a scam. We have three witnesses who said they seen Hinkle spill the coffee on purpose. An investigator working on this case has told me that Hinkle has some gambling debts, and he has been working on various schemes of getting the money to pay them off.” Mr. Hinkle, who will be representing himself should the case go to court, denies these allegations. Jury selection begins next week.
