California Woman Files Suit Against Starbucks

Jan 26, 2005 | AP

A La Verne mother is suing Starbucks for selling a glass coffee-maker that shattered and scalded her three-year-old daughter.

According to the lawsuit filed in Pomona Superior Court, Ann Marie Crowder bought a Bodum brand coffee maker from a Starbucks shop one or two years ago. Her daughter, Destiny, was standing near the kitchen counter September 16th when the accident happened.

The lawsuit alleges personal injury, product liability and emotional distress, and it also names Bodum the European manufacturer of the coffee maker as a defendant.

Crowder's attorney believes there was a defect in the glass or in the base of the coffee maker. He says Starbucks is liable under a California law that makes the distributor of a defective product equally liable as the manufacturer.
