Oberlin College to Jury: We’re cash poor
and big punitive award to Gibson’s Bakery

The witness testimony completed today in the punitive damages hearing, which follows the $11.2 million compensatory verdict last Friday in the lawsuit Gibson’s Bakery v. Oberlin College. (Snip) Gibson’s lawyers spent considerable time going over Oberlin College’s IRS Form 990, showing over $1 billion in assets and numerous employees earning over $100,000. They also got the Vice President and General Counsel of the college to admit to some of the content of the blast email she sent out soon after the compensatory verdict, including that she felt the jury disregarded the “clear evidence,” though they were not

Comments:

As usual, it’s for the children, the students. Mr. McGraw’s levity in describing the college’s finances being in dire straits for about four hours presents a measure of stark reality: “...it felt like a divorce court proceeding where one of the spouses was claiming they had no assets to divide. Even though they had a Rolls Royce car in the garage and a nice yacht at the marina.” This news account quite revealing and continues to reflect the expertise of the Gibson’s attorney, Lee Plakas.

I've read Oberlin College has a ginormous endowment fund. Children or young adults or anyone learn how to lie in many different ways. Exactly, what does "cash poor" mean? "Tis always about "the children". (another lie)

I guess they didn’t worry about their actions hurting the bakery considering the boycott the flyers and protestors as well as stopping doing business with them. Think they were cash poor because of their actions? They intentionally tried to inflict financial damage. Looks like the jury will be doing the same. What goes around comes around.

If they have a planning division it's in need of a total overhaul ... what the heck did they think would happen? There's 'best case' and 'worst case' did they forget about the latter and - being prepared? Oberlin's faculty and administrators aren't showing high levels of competency.

Students (i.e., student activists) started the hubbub. The 3 miscreants apologized for their shoplifting, and made restitution. The SJW contingent then proceeded to sue the pants off the bakery, then complain about pantless bakers. Go pound sand. I see no reason why Oberlin admin shouldn't close the doors and get some real jobs.

#8- Mea culpa. Intended to include the financial picture of Oberlin College and neglected to do so. Here are bits and pieces from the news article. - The college has more than $1 billion in funds and net assets according to the latest IRS 990 form, an endowment fund that had grown from $440 million to $887 million in the last 20 years, and because of its non-profit status, pays no taxes on any property it owns. - It also had 18 members of their administration making more than $100,000 a year. The president and chief financial officer of the school were both making more than $500,000 a year. - The enrollment has gone down from 2961 in 2104 to 2785 this year. That’s a decline of 176 students, or a 6% drop in enrollment. That might be a loss of $12.3 million in tuition and dorm housing revenue, but then you have to figure that’s less scholarship and grants coming out of endowment.

Did this article say that only 10% of Oberlin's students pay full tuition? I'm not sure if I read that right. So that means most of the students have some sort of grant or scholarship!! One would think they would be more grateful. This is amazing - a student (a student with at least partial a scholarship) shows a fake ID & then shop lifts wine & then helps his friends attack the old man who attempts to hold him for the cops. A dean of the college asks the business to drop charges and if they do that she will re-instate their food contract with the school. Same dean (before or after) pretty much sics the student mob onto this established town business. If she didn't instigate the protest she surely encouraged it once it got started. In a sane world the student(s) would be expelled for use of a fake ID, assault & underage drinking. The dean would have gotten fired for supporting a mob and for trying to extort the Gibson's with promise of a contract. Any student who protested would be on probation including the ones who were ready to throw away any bread Gibson's sold to the college cafeteria. This is the same school which a few years back kicked out several male students for "not complying" with the college's "continual consent policy" while having sex!

The defense argued that students would be harmed by a large verdict because the college might have to cut back on grants given to students. And did anyone point out that it was the STUDENTS that STARTED this mess to begin with?! Maybe they'll think about that the next time they reach for their revolutionary berets to attack innocent people!

So far the media has managed to avert its eyes and studiously ignore a major story of corruption and malfeasance in Congress because to cover said story would totally destroy a narrative and expose them to allegations that they are racist. At the epicenter of this tale is the pustulent and rather dim Elijah Cummings from my current state of residence. Cummings is your typical product of the Maryland Democrat machine. The reek of corruption is always near him but never quite attaches to him because he is, as I said, the product of the Maryland Democrat machine and therefore bulletproof.
