(NEWSER) – It's deja vu all over again: A California woman is suing McDonald's, claiming its hot coffee burned her. And it's deja vu in more ways than one: Paulette Carr's case recalls that of famed 1990s predecessor Stella Liebeck, along with a case filed just months ago by Californian Joan Fino. Fino says her groin area was burned by the hot coffee in August 2012; Carr similarly said her injuries occurred in 2012, specifically on Jan. 12, after she ordered coffee from a Los Angeles McDonald's drive-thru. The description of her injuries is not so detailed, though, reports the Los Angeles Times.
