(Stratford, Connecticut) February 4, 2013 – Local attorney and former Stratford Connecticut Mayor Jim Miron, in collaboration with the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association, will be hosting a screening and discussion of the legal documentary, “Hot Coffee” on Tuesday, February 19, 2013, 7p.m. at the Stratford Library.
In addition to hosting the event, Attorney Miron has donated three copies of the award- winning documentary to the Stratford Library.
“Hot Coffee” examines several cases where injuries resulted due to negligence, such as the famous McDonald’s coffee case, and asks the question: “Is justice being served?” The film was an Official Selection at the Sundance Festival in 2011 and won the Grand Jury Prize for Best Documentary at the Seattle International Film Festival. “There are a lot of preconceived, and often faulty, perceptions of the civil justice system that society should look at more carefully,” Attorney Miron said. “Hopefully this screening, along with the addition of this documentary to the Stratford Library, will help to better educate our citizens about our civil justice system.”
Jim Miron is the former mayor of the Town of Stratford and Chairman of the Personal Injury Department at Zeisler & Zeisler, P.C. a Bridgeport law firm representing injured people statewide.
