If you can sue McDonald's because your coffee is too hot, then she's got a case.
A Dallas Cowboys fan is burning mad at her team.
Jennelle Carrillo, of Cleburne, Texas, has sued the Cowboys and owner/general manager Jerry Jones after she suffered severe burns to her backside while allegedly sitting on a bench outside Cowboys Stadium before a team scrimmage in August 2010.
Temperatures on the day of the annual Blue & Silver scrimmage were more than 100 degrees, and the bench that Carrillo sat on was black.
"The bench was uncovered and openly exposed to the extremely hot August sun," the suit, which was filed in Tarrant County civil court, states. "The combination of the nature of the black, marble bench and hot sunlight caused the bench to become extremely hot and unreasonably dangerous."
Carrillo's lawyer, Michael Wash, told KDFW-TV that his client initially knew she had been burned but didn't realize the extent of the injuries until receiving medical attention. She did not stay for the game, according to Wash.
"She sat down on this black bench, outside an entrance and unfortunately she suffered third-degree burns as a result of it and had subsequent skin grafts," he told KDFW.
The suit alleges that Cowboys Stadium posted no warning signs alerting fans that the benches could be hot.
Wash told KDFW that Carrillo has suffered "mental anguish, physical pain and disfigurement as a result of her wounds."
According to the TV station, Carrillo is suing to get a jury trial and payment of court fees, interest and a damage amount determined by the jury.
The Cowboys declined comment to KDFW due to the ongoing litigation, per team policy.

This is one way to get your favorite team to notice you.
She looks like a Cowboy fan.
Must have been wearing a miniskirt for it to have burned her skin.

What's new ?
Lay a big fat chunk of back bacon on there, lay a brick on top of that, and it will cook just fine.
Fry an egg and Bob's your uncle.

We could all sit outside on banana lounges discussing the best way to rebuild a 4WD transmission and agree, through shared stories of conquests supporting our assertions, that there is no basis to the proposition that those least assured of their persuasions are the first to condemn others for theirs.
In a healthy society, don't you think incidents such as this would go unmentioned due to the fact that people would be too embarrassed to let others know how stupid they had been?
This sort of stuff is a direct result of stupidity being celebrated and the victim mentality...
Black surface attracts heat from the sun while white reflects it...what grade do they teach that again...3-4?...

it was pretty f**king stupid to put a black bench in the texas sun.
it was pretty f**king stupid of the fat chick to sit on it and even stupider of her to sit there long enough to cause burns.
jerry jones should be sued and the money given to the school system that fat chick went to so they can hire some teachers who actually know how to teach. you gotta figure george w was elected governor down there. the whole state has some serious issues going on
