ELYRIA The law firms that represented Gibsons Bakery and its owners in a lawsuit against Oberlin College have been awarded approximately $6.5 million in attorney fees by Lorain County [Ohio] Common Pleas Judge John Miraldi.
The amount is on top of the $25 million in compensatory and punitive damages Oberlin College has been ordered to pay the bakery and its owners, who won a lawsuit against the college last month.

Excellent. Well played.
But, the clowns that run that dump and orchestrated this mess probably will get to continue on drawing a salary in spite of the mess. I wonder what their endowments are?
Thats a rather personal question, is t it?
And it is unlikely Oberlin’s liability insurance will cover a dime. Heh, heh.
Exactly! It isn’t their money so no sweat off their noses. They will continue their socialist spew..
Hundreds of millions...they need to cut the crap and write the check.
Something you might need eye bleach for if seen.
I’ve read that Oberlin’s endowment is up near $1B.
The college administration is a major component driving the crazy so cant expect help from them and our politicians are actively obstructing accountability and enabling the insanity.
The legal system is our only hope and winning a few law suit with multi million dollar damages in each is about the only option we have of curbing the excesses of the campus revolutionaries.
Nice to academia having to factor in the same liability litigation risks to their schools that they have helped foist on the rest of us
They have enough to cover it via endowments, but it has to sting badly.
This needs to happen repeatedly throughout the country. There are too many people representing institutions (academia and media primarily) with a social justice hair trigger who never wait for the facts before they assume some kind of horrific lynching over any feigned or manufactured slight. The insults, lies, and innuendo they cast upon others should have repercussions like this.
Combine this with the Covington H.S. and smart attorneys around the country will be ready to pounce on this stuff. This is why libel laws exist and I hope the Gibson’s enjoy a wonderful retirement thanks to three thieves and the merry band of social justice idiots.
The facts in this case were very clear and bore no resemblance to the accusations.
$713.9 million as of 2013 http://endowments.com/oberlin-college/
It was shrinkage, Jerry!
They already made clear they are not obligated to do so.
“...The legal system is our only hope...”
It’s the second to last hope.
One has to conclude their retirement plans are a bit shaky.
Anyone got ideas how much the attorneys made on a per hour basis?
Their unrepentance is not going to help them on appeal.
Declining. That's what they are.
