Burned. In Moltner v. Starbucks Coffee Co. (discussed below), the plaintiff had been burned while opening the lid on a "Venti"-sized cup of coffee from Starbucks. The defendant moved for summary judgment, which motion was granted. The plaintiff put in expert affidavits to show that cups and/or lids were defectively designed. The district court held that all of affidavits did not meet the standard required by Rule 702 of the Federal Rules of Evidence. The Second Circuit agreed in a summary order.

The summary order can be found here.
