Beyond the Classroom presents "Hot Coffee"

Description:
An eye-opening documentary with jaw-dropping revelations, Hot Coffee exposes how corporations spend millions on propaganda campaigns to distort our views of lawsuits  forever chancing the civil justice system. By examining the impact of tort reform on the lives of ordinary citizens, the film shows how Americans give up their Constitutional rights in many ways without knowing it  for example, by voting for caps on damages or signing away their rights in contracts. Through interviews with politicians, judges, lawyers and ordinary citizens, filmmakers and former public-interest lawyer Susan Saladoff delves into the facts of four cases to tear apart the conventional wisdom about jackpot justice. It makes us all question our simple assumptions  its a film that needs to be seen!  Grand Jury, Seattle Film Festival.
