Civil Plaintiff

Jury awards Ohio Bakery $11M against Oberlin College

Gibson’s Bakery won more than $11 million from Oberlin College Friday in a lawsuit stemming from protests outside the College Street business in November 2016.

The bakery sued the liberal arts college and Vice President and Dean of Students Meredith Raimondo after a robbery at the bakery. Three black Oberlin students were arrested after one tried to use a fake ID and shoplifted from Gibson’s in 2016. Allyn Gibson, the white son of the bakery’s owner, followed the students out of the store and got into a physical altercation with them.

After the students were arrested, student protests erupted, claiming that the robbery charge and physical conflict were racially motivated. Protestors urged patrons to shop elsewhere.
