About the Film

Hot Coffee is a 2011 documentary film that analyzes and discusses the impact of tort reform on the United States judicial system. The title of the documentary is derived from the 1994 Liebeck v.

The documentary discusses this case in addition to others, including: 

The film is directed by Susan Saladoff, who has practiced as a medical malpractice attorney for at least 26 years. It premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival on January 24, 2011, and later aired on HBO on June 27, 2011, as a part of HBO films documentary summer series.
