Law VERDICT: Jury awards Gibson’s Bakery $11 million against Oberlin College - Your hate hoax isn't "just starting a conversation"

Oberlin wishes they had the mosquito fuhrer to lead them to victory instead of whatever superlawyers they had on hand.
I will cheerfully admit I could be wrong. But this was a losing fight from the get go. Unlike other cases (say, Vic), they had the school dead to rights; members of the administration actively assisting with the protests, posters printed using university assets, etc.
I'd say the bakery's case was no stronger than Vic's at face value, but having a good judge and better filings made all the difference. Not sure what Ohio's anti-SLAPP law is compared to the TCPA but that could make a difference too.

Still wouldn’t shock me if at some point it gets overturned because a judge thinks that the floodgates would open on academia if Oberlin actually had to pony up the cash.
