    Judge Reduces Oberlin Damages To $25 Million

    Friday a judge reduced the damages in the Oberlin case to just over $25 million. A reduction was expected because the original award given to Gibsonís bakery exceeded caps on punitive damages put in place as part of a tort reform effort in Ohio. Itís not clear if Oberlin will attempt to appeal the current judgment to further reduce it.

    The Chronicle-Telegram recounts a conference call Oberlinís president held Thursday night with alumni to reassure them the school would be able to pay the judgment. Not only does President Carmen Twillie Ambar not sound apologetic, she seems to be questioning the guilt of the student shoplifter involved in the initial incident:
    ...
    Thereís no reason to doubt the shoplifting in this case. Police body cam video (see below) shows the two bottles on the floor of the store where they were dropped as the student ran out of the store. Police pick them up to take them as evidence. More surprising though is the fact that President Ambar appeared to be saying on the call that Gibsonís does treat people differently based on race:
    It looks likely that Oberlin will double-down on their stupid and appeal. Gibson's may want to consider whether Ambar's post-verdict communications constitute new slanders.

    There was a discussion on Legal Insurrection yesterday about the possibilities of the lowered damages. The worse case was 14 million total; the best was all $44 million and the middle was $25 mil. Looks like the judge did indeed split the difference. (Legal fees will also be added later.)

    Oberlin needs to pay the damages and FIRE its President and Dean Raimondo. It was Raimondo's emails that explicitly detailed the college's part in the slander of the bakery and the support of student mayhem. And the President Carmen Twillie Ambar is dumb as a box of rocks and responsible for the terrible defense of Oberlin in court.
