New Jersey couple sue Dunkin’ over hot coffee burns

America could be Dunkin’, but a New Jersey man and his wife are running into court after allegedly being burned by a hot cup of Java Joint coffee.

Evan Arlington and Stephanie Arlington-Macias purchased two cups of coffee and an iced coffee from a Totowa Dunkin’ Donuts on Aug. 25, 2021, according to a lawsuit they filed in Passaic County on April 4.

Arlington suffered second- and third-degree burns after the coffee in his lap was spilled at the drive-thru, the couple’s attorney, William Gold, said.

Arlington had medical bills while Arlington-Macias, 37, suffered “a loss of her husband’s help, comfort, marital union and consortium,” they allege in the lawsuit.

The pair are seeking unspecified damages. Dunkin’ Donuts did not return a message.

Brew-hot coffee first made headlines in 1992 when Stella Liebeck, then 79, won $2.7 million from McDonald’s after suffering third-degree burns after a hot drink was spilled in her lap.
