Judge Smacks Oberlin College in Gibson Bakery Case, Upholds Judgment

Gibson's Bakery, near Oberlin

Well, this is going to leave a mark.

Earlier this year, an Ohio jury found Oberlin College guilty of producing and distributing slanderous information about a storied local business, Gibson Bakery.  A  bakery employee, chased after a shoplifter trying to steal wine, and caught him.  The employee was an elderly white man, part of the Gibson family.  The shoplifter was black.  Some Oberlin College students claimed racism, although in court the shoplifter said that race had nothing to do with it, as he was stealing.

That didn’t deter students from starting a movement to shut down Gibson Bakery for racism, a move that the Oberlin College administration supported by pulling contracts from Gibson as well as printing and distributing materials calling Gibson employees and policies racist.

Gibson sued, and won a $32 million judgment.  Oberlin moved to have the conviction vacated, and to have the award dismissed.

A judge just denied both.  Oberlin will be required to post $36 million to an escrow account so that the university can’t claim a lack of funds after the case moves through the inevitable appeals process, which could take a couple of years.



    • This is just a small dot of Real JUSTICE in the USA today. Our wonderful country has become infected with the “far left” so called justice. If you do the crime , you better know you will do the time. eye for an eye, FAIR CLEAN JUSTICE. I agree ITS ABOUT TIME.

  1. YES!! Finally, justice bites back at the race baiters! There has been no penalty for those who falsely accuse others of racism or ”intolerance” of something. No penalty for destroying businesses or people’s lives just because they don’t believe like the accuser. The PC police needed to be reined in!!

  2. FINALLY – a judge using good judgement.
    So terribly depressing these students/people don’t know right from wrong. As for the Oberlin College supporting the bakery shutdown – just think about it: this is coming from “leaders” in a “higher institution of learning”…people who are supposed to be intelligent and discerning – YIKES!…it’s like everyone is a brainwashed ewe. I feel sad for our society…

    • They do know right from wrong. They just don’t care, as long as they get what ever they want, right here and right now, regardless who or what gets destroyed on the process.

    • Justice is done. Oberlin College’s arrogance is not excusable and is properly punished. I pray that they will lose their appeal and that the bakery gets paid for legal expenses.

  3. Hope this will deter other colleges to continue with left ideas. Just proved that teachers, administration are all infected and students follow them. No wonder professionals are declining in quality. No concentration in learning, only giving precious time to politics. Wish parents do not support these leeches. MAGA.

  4. Oberlin and their black /Marxist students deserve to be shut down for lying and indecent fraud.Black lives matter is a bigoted group forgetting only in america can these people even open their foul mouths.Free speech means free speech for all not just the bigots.
