Oberlin College has asked the Ohio Supreme Court to issue an order halting payment of the $36 million a court has awarded Gibson's Bakery while the college appeals rulings by two lower courts. (Snip) The college also accused the Gibsons of trying to prevent Zurich from filing a response.(Snip)"Even if neither the trial court's stay nor the terms of the bond contemplated that the stay would remain in effect pending the 'exhaustion of all of the Defendants' appeals,'" the Ohio Supreme Court "would have the authority to extend the stay and continue the term of the bond to encompass Oberlin's pending appeal," the college argued.


May the peace of God be with the Gibson family.

The Ohio Republican legislature should look into the finances of Oberlin and see if everything is in order. The way they are fighting this seems like they have a finance problem ie well underfunded pensions or other liabilities.

To my non-lawyer self my understanding is a stay is to prevent the execution of a judgement that cannot be undone or otherwise remedied. I fail to see how that applies. If somehow the appeal goes through the Gibsons can just pay the money back. No harm no foul. Oberlin, write the check.

Oberlin rushed to judge Gibson’s Bakery “racist” for having the audacity to challenge shoplifters. Bullies who prey on those they deem easy marks deserve nothing less than a taste of their own medicine. Oberlin created a false narrative about a family business, and earned the punishment they now seek to avoid. No more delays are deserved.

I don't know the intricacies of the appeal process, but I read something recently that suggested that Oberlin missed its opportunity to continue its appeal due to a filing oversight, prompting the Gibsons to request the judgment be paid. In April, the college's appeal was dismissed 3-0 by the 9th Ohio District Court of Appeals, upholding the 2019 judgment. Oberlin continues to hammer away. This is illuminating:

If the Ohio Supreme Court has any sense, they’ll refuse to hear this case. If that happens, Zurich American owes Gibson’s a boatload of money, payable immediately. After that, Zurich and Oberlin can fight it out. And it sounds as if Oberlin may have a malpractice claim against their law firm.

We have been covering several stories related to the escalation of drug deaths across the country, namely due to fentanyl (now the leading cause of death for young Americans).

For example, we reported that Biden’s Health and Human Services department provided $30 million in funding to dole out crack pipes to drug addicts as part of its ‘Harm Reduction Plan.’

Gibson’s Bakery filed today its response to Oberlin College’s request that the Ohio Supreme Court exercise its discretion to hear the college’s appeal from the $32 million judgment (which includes attorney’s fees and costs). That judgment resulted from the $11 million compensatory and $33 million punitive damage awards totalling $44 million, reduced by the trial court under Ohio tort reform law to $25 million. The bulk of that reduction was that over $10 million in punitive damages were eliminated by punitive damage caps.

The Pentagon first raised the possibility of sending National Guard troops to the U.S. Capitol four days before the Jan. 6 riots, setting in motion a series of rejections by Capitol Police and Democrats that left Congress vulnerable as threats of violence were rising, according to government memos that validate Trump administration officials' long-held claims. An official timeline of the Jan. 6 tragedy assembled by Capitol Police shows that a Defense Department official reached out to a Capitol Police deputy chief, Sean Gallagher, on Jan. 2, 2021 to see if a request for troops was forthcoming, but the offer was quickly rejected after a consultation with then-Chief Steve Sund.

In her June 18/19 column at the Wall Street Journal, Ms. Noonan takes Hillary Clinton's "deplorables" slap at Trump voters and goes one — nay, two better. She refers to voters who question the results of the 2020 presidential election as "kooks, crooks, and freaks" and then smears the citizens who went to Washington, D.C. January 6, 2021 as "[t]hose poor stupid people." What is the basis for this criticism, which, arguably, is less ad hominem and, more accurately, descriptive of her mindset? Perhaps Ms. Noonan has not read Margot Cleveland's analysis in The Federalist showing how Georgia election officials failed to enforce the state's election laws in 2020.

Speaking in Central Park, Adams compared the modern-day uprooting of people of color from neighborhoods across the US—including the five boroughs—to slavery. “When I was in Ghana last year, [I] saw how families were displaced, torn apart and brought over to America through slavery in the hulls of the ships, living in dungeons, spending months and months living in their human waste, having their babies taken from them, and saw them dispersed and displaced,” he said.

Extreme heat early in the summer season is calling into question the strength of electricity and power grids across the country, as warnings about brownouts and requests to conserve power continue to rise. As temperatures increase, the risk of power outages grows along with them. Warmer weather means higher power usage as people turn to devices like air-conditioning units and fans to try to cool their homes and offices. A May report from the non-profit North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) predicted a "high risk of energy emergencies during peak summer conditions" in the Upper Midwest.

Texas taxpayers are paying the price for Governor Greg Abbott's plan to bus migrants who crossed into the U.S. illegally to Washington, D.C. As of June 7, $2.9 million in taxpayer funds have sent only 1,778 immigrants to the nation's capital, according to Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) documents–and the figure is expected to rise as more buses have already been deployed and Abbott shows no signs of slowing the stunt. More than $1 million of the total cost has gone toward security alone, while taxpayers are also footing the bill for drivers and GPS tracking, among other things.

Near the end of an especially tumultuous week in his tumultuous presidency, Joe Biden gave his first media interview in four months to someone who wasn’t a late-night comedian. For a public hungering for answers, it wasn’t worth the wait. The president chose The Associated Press and the sit-down lasted a little less than 30 minutes, but that was more than enough time for him to demonstrate again he’s got no new ideas or even a new way of packaging old ideas. Biden acknowledges America is in a funk, but shows no sense of compassion or determination to turn the tide.
