To be clear, there's a difference between the brew temp (which is the temperature the Keurig heats the water to before pumping it through the grounds), and serving temperature.

But even with that, the reality of the situation is that coffee is supposed to be brewed really hot, and many if not most prefer to consume it very hot as well. They still serve the coffee that hot, they just have better warnings/disclaimers.
Aha, but the entire thing is disingenuous. He tries to make it seem absurd that anyone would serve coffe close to boiling temp. Often, when you make coffe you use boiling water.

They're obviously not ruling by Talmudic standards, lol.

They're typical media/ marketing. Say it with enough conviction and in the right tone, add a few dramatic images and you can convince people of anything.

Which is why that's so damaging for the company's image and l"h is akin to killing someone.

And you can get third degree burns from 160 or 170 also, if you pour the cup on your lap

You can argue the merits of the case itself, but the point is that it's held up as such a prominent example of a frivolous suit and of an overly litigious society. A lot of that had to do with misinformation - that she was driving, or that she had only minor injuries, etc. To me that was the crux of the Adam Ruins piece.

This is made much worse if you are wearing any clothing that will absorb the hot liquid and insulate it for more than a few seconds.

I've never tried, but is 190 degree liquid even drinkable without getting burned?

Here's an academic paper studying the optimal temperature for serving coffee and tea.  Says between 160 and 185 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18226454

So McDonalds was super negligent because theirs was 190.
