Oberlin College denied new trial in Gibsonís Bakery case
Legal Insurrection ^ | September 10, 2019 | William A. Jacobson

Posted on 09/11/2019 10:13:43 AM PDT by yesthatjallen

In the Gibson’s Bakery v. Oberlin College case, the judgment for the plaintiffs amounted to almost $32 million in damages and defendants were required to post a $36 million bond to secure the judgment pending appeal.

Before appealing, Oberlin College filed two post-trial motions, a Motion for Judgment Notwithstanding The Verdict (pdf.) and Motion for a New Trial (pdf.), as explained in our post, Oberlin College Seeks New Trial in Gibson’s Bakery Case.

Gibson’s Bakery responded with an Opposition to the Motion for Judgment Notwithstanding The Verdict (pdf.), and Opposition to the Motion for a New Trial (pdf.), as explained in our post, Gibson’s Bakery: Oberlin College’s request for a new trial is “baseless”.

Between the two motions and the appeal...what, another $100k flushed down into the lawyer pit? I doubt if they are finished. They seem to think they will eventually find the right judge and get the whole thing thrown out.

Yay! I hate to see these delaying tactics. Cough up the coin, Oberlin!

Love it. Just love it. I am rooting for Oberlin College to go completely broke, lay off everyone and close its doors.

I view Oberlin College exactly as I view nearly every media entity existing out there.

Perhaps it will deter future scum from jumping on a “Woke Wagon” because they enjoy their virtue signalling.

Probably not, though. That might take some thought and self-reflection on their part, and we know that isn’t going to happen.

What? I thought “Do-overs Until The Liberals Win” was a sound legal principle in the U.S. It certainly is in politics.

perhaps even more. As long as they keep losing they have to pay the lawyers for both sides.

I wonder about the requirements for payment. One lump sum I presume.

I wonder if they are going to hold out indefinitely and refuse to pay and can they do this? If I were a juror, it would appear to me that the college is not remorseful about what they did which means that additional fines should be applied.

If they were smart, they’d pay the money and be done with it and move on.

They’re sitting on a huge endowment fund but the alumni who gave that money didn’t give it to be wasted on legal fights. They will pull the plug soon.

$2 million, bammo, right there.

Just walk around the campus, pointed at the buildings you like.

What?

They don't OWN them?

They HAVE the cash, they simply don't want to cough it up.

I am REALLY going to enjoy this.

Their argument was basically "the jury screwed up, the Judge screwed up, the plaintiff's didn't know what they were doing, the verdict was obviously wrong, and we deserve another trial to get the whole thing put right."

I guess that argument (if you can call it one) didn't really fly.

Plaintiffs in their answer to the request for a new trial pointed out that every point made by Oberlin in their plea for a new trial had already been addressed, argued, and ruled on during the original trial.

As Billthedrill said, the doctrine of "do-overs until the liberals win" hasn't yet completely taken over the legal system.

I suspect their next move will be a public relations blitzkrieg of sob stories about how this verdict “robs our young people of their future opportunities”. Prepare a backstory for that judge they are shopping for.

Oberlin was required to post a $36 million bond before appealing.
