Oberlin College denied new trial in Gibson’s Bakery case

In the Gibson’s Bakery v. Oberlin College case, the judgment for the plaintiffs amounted to almost $32 million in damages and defendants were required to post a $36 million bond to secure the judgment pending appeal.

Before appealind, Oberlin College filed two post-trial motions, a Motion for Judgment Notwithstanding The Verdict (pdf.) and Motion for a New Trial (pdf.), as explained in our post, Oberlin College Seeks New Trial in Gibson’s Bakery Case.

Gibson’s Bakery responded with an Opposition to the Motion for Judgment Notwithstanding The Verdict (pdf.), and Opposition to the Motion for a New Trial (pdf.), as explained in our post, Gibson’s Bakery: Oberlin College’s request for a new trial is “baseless”.

Judge John Miraldi has ruled, denying both motions. The Order Denying Motion for Judgment Notwithstanding the Verdict (pdf.) and Order Denying Motion for New Trial (pdf.) are embedded at the bottom of the post.

  1. In Favor of the Plaintiff says:

    I had to look up Motion for Judgment Notwithstanding the Verdict. It means the jury didn’t follow the law, ignored the law, didn’t follow instructions, or didn’t know what they were doing.

    I think think they did know what they were doing.

  2. SgtBob says:

    Oberlin needs to pay the money. How long before the college hits up its graduates to cover lawyer fees?

  3. MartinFromGermany says:

    Hit them for every red cent they own. Squeeze them until they squeal and do not stop until they have paid in full. Perhaps that will teach them … and others of their ilk.

  4. FrankP says:

    Time to pay up, bitches!

    Every greenback and every red cent you owe.

    Pay until it hurts.

Play nice.
