    ...The financial impact of the Gibsonís Bakery loss is not yet clear. It will be interesting to see if the negative publicity impacts the incoming class, and how much in grant money needs to be spent to maintain quality and quantity. But clearly Oberlin College has suffered a public relations body blow from the case. The seriousness of the situation is further revealed in a campus announcement that Oberlin College will seek to replace UAW union workers in the dining hall and custodial services with outsourced contractors...

    Inside Gibsonís, the atmosphere is quiet and subdued. Itís clear that this little business and its owners have endured a great deal in the past three years, beginning with student protests in front of the store in November 2016. The protesters denounced the Gibson family as racist and claimed the store had a long history of racial profiling (none of which is true). Evidence introduced at trial established that the college facilitated these protests and that at least one senior college official actively participated in them. Following the protests, the college suspended its 100-year business relationship with Gibsonís Bakery.

    I appeared tonight on Tucker Carlson Tonight to provide an update on the Gibsonís Bakery v. Oberlin College case. It was my first time doing an on-set interview, and it was fun. TUCKER: In late 2016, three students at Oberlin college, maybe the most liberal college in the country, tried to rob a small family business near the school called Gibsonís Bakery. Tried to steal a bottle of booze among other things. When they were caught, one of them assaulted the son of the bakeryís owner, physically. One response to that, Oberlin college amazingly attack the bakery as racist and...

    There have been many strange motions and actions in the Gibsonís Bakery v. Oberlin College case. A post-trial motion by Oberlin College to unseal Facebook records may be one of the more strange developments, and offers a window into the bitter feelings of college officials. Allyn D. Gibson (Allyn D.) is the grandson of plaintiff Allyn W. Gibson (ďAllyn W.Ē) and the son of plaintiff David Gibson. Allyn D., who was not a party in the lawsuit, was the store clerk on duty who caught an Oberlin College student shoplifting. The scuffle that ensued, involving two additional Oberlin College students,...

    In the Gibsonís 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 Gibsonís Bakery Case. Gibsonís 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...

    The combined compensatory and punitive damages ($25 million) and attorneyís fees and costs (over $6.5 million) awards in favor of Gibsonís Bakery and its owners left Oberlin College almost $32 million in debt. Yesterday Oberlin College posted the bond (pdf.), a copy of which is embedded at the bottom of this post. The bond is in the name of the college and co-defendant Meredith Raimondo, even though the college, according to court documents, has agreed to cover any amounts owed by Raimondo. There is no indication what assets, if any, Oberlin College had to pledge to secure the bond. Normally...

    ELYRIA ó Lorain County Common Pleas Judge John Miraldi has ordered Oberlin College to post a $36 million appeal bond before he stays execution of the multimillion-dollar judgment recently won against the college by Gibsonís Bakery and the Gibson family. Attorneys for the Gibsons had requested the college post a bond worth $36,367,711.56, representing the total amount of judgments against the college, plus interest, awarded by a jury and Miraldi following a six-week trial that lasted from late May into early June.

    Legal Insurrection ^ | 7/24/2019 | William A Jacobson
    Judge granted Oberlin Collegeís motion to stay execution of the judgment, but required the posting of a bond in the amount of the judgment plus three years interest as security. The compensatory and punitive damages of $25 million (after reduction for tort reform caps), plus the over $6.5 million in attorneyís fees and costs, put Oberlin College almost $32 million in debt to Gibsonís Bakery and its owners. Absent some judicial action, the next step would have been for the Gibsons to execute on the judgment, meaning start collecting the money through post-judgment remedies, such as seizing bank accounts and...

    A Democrat judge has nearly halved the damages awarded to Gibsonís Bakery, which previously won a defamation lawsuit against Oberlin College. The jury originally awarded $44 million to the bakery in punitive and compensatory damages after members of Oberlin protested and labeled the bakery racist. Damages have now been reduced to just $25 million.

    Gibsonís Bakery Attorneys at TPM address misleading statements made by Oberlin College OBERLIN, OHIO: An Ohio jury recently sent a clear message in the case of Gibsonís Bakery v. Oberlin College: The truth still matters. After an intense trial that lasted nearly six weeks, the 134-year-old family bakery was awarded $33.2 million in punitive damages in addition to $11 million in compensatory damages. But despite the juryís verdicts against Oberlin College and its Vice President and Dean of Students on libel, tortious interference with business relationships and intentional infliction of emotional distress, officials at Oberlin College continue to propagate a...

    ďWhich office do I go to to get my reputation back?Ē Ė Raymond Donovan The media had a field day painting Donovan, Reaganís former Secretary of Labor, as a mafia stooge after he had been indicted on corruption charges in 1985 for his work with a construction company accused of having mob ties. The only problem was the charges didnít hold up, in fact they spectacularly imploded. Donovanís attorneys rested their case without ever calling a single witness, contending the prosecution failed to prove Donovan did anything wrong. The jury agreed, and Donovan was acquitted (along with all the...

    Identity politics is having an identity crisis. Parading as a noble cause to elevate only one side of the hyphenated American, identity politics has always cultivated a mean streak, a vulnerable underbelly of hatred for the "other" it indiscriminately blames for prejudice against African Americans, Native Americans and any other culture perceived to be at the mercy of the white man. No one disputes that prejudice based on race and religion is a terrible thing, but it's a simple truth that truth should not be sacrificed in looking for it. While identity politics seeks to liberate the victim of prejudice...

    Oberlin College in Ohio has devolved into one of academe's most infamous examples of political correctness, one of those unwelcoming places that rails against anyone who brings speakers to campus if those speakers upset Oberlin's crusades against the racist/sexist/anti-gay menace. Now Oberlin's administration is being punished in a very significant way for a very significant offense, and it's about time. It has taken political correctness to an abusive extreme. The Wall Street Journal opinion section headline summed it up: "Oberlin Pays for Smearing the Town Grocer." It has been ordered to pay $44 million in damages to Gibson's Food Market...

The text of the response can be found here. Chants of ďNo justice, no peaceĒ reverberated across campus from early morning into late last night as hundreds of protesters lined West College Street, calling for a boycott of Gibsonís Bakery. An altercation between Gibsonís employee Allyn Gibson and College sophomore Elijah Aladin Wednesday evening led to the Oberlin Police Department arresting Aladin and...

    Oberlin Review ^ | June 17, 2019 | Anisa Curry Vietze
    The Lorain County jury overseeing the trial between Gibsonís Bakery and Oberlin College and Vice President and Dean of Students Meredith Raimondo has ruled in the bakeryís favor, announcing $11 million in compensatory damages last Friday and an additional $33.2 million in punitive damages yesterday. Of the total $44.2 million, it is possible that the assigned punitive damages will be reduced to $22 million because of an Ohio state law that caps punitive damages at twice the amount of compensatory damages. Compensatory damages are meant to compensate a plaintiff for any losses they have endured, while punitive damages are meant...

    Although IRS reports show the university is worth around $1 billion, Oberlin College still claimed poverty to avoid paying punitive damages to Gibsonís Bakery. As Breitbart News reported this week, the far-left Oberlin College lost a defamation case filed by Gibsonís Bakery after a local jury found the university liable for falsely accusing the family bakery of racism. The jury ordered Oberlin on Friday to pay Gibsonís $11.2 million in compensatory damages for defamation and intentional interference with a business. Legal Insurrection reported on Thursday that ďthe jury awarded a total of $33 million in punitive damages, which will probably...

    The jury just rendered its verdict on punitive damages in the Gibsonís Bakery v. Oberlin College case. Daniel McGraw, our reporter in the courtroom, reports that in addition to the $11.2 million compensatory damages awarded last Friday, the jury awarded a total of $33 million in punitive damages, which will probably be reduced by the court to $22 million because of the state law cap at twice compensatory (itís not an absolute cap, but probably will apply here). That brings the total damages to $33 million. We will have the breakdown soon. The jury also awarded attorneyís fees, to be...
