$15M suit for burns from java

A Staten Island woman who was badly burned after spilling scalding hot coffee on her lap is suing Dunkin’ Donuts for a cool $15 million.

The coffee crisis happened Nov. 12 after Shea and a friend pulled out of a Forest Ave. Dunkin’ Donuts drive-through and headed to a strip mall across the street. When the pal tried to park, lids on two cups came off, causing 200-degree java to spill and soak through her jeans, her lawyer said.
