Dang: Judge Reduces Total Damages in Oberlin Woke Defamation Case to $25 Million, Down from $44 Million

And the guidelines permitted the reward to remain at $33 million, but he reduced it further from there.

Still, a $25 million judgment is nothing to sneeze at.

The President of Oberlin is reacting to this $25 million defamation award by further insinuating the same defamatory claims of racism against the Gibsons in a conference call:

The Chronicle-Telegram recounts a conference call Oberlin's 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...

Despite the students involved in the theft and assault taking responsibility in court, Ambar said she felt the initial incident was "mischaracterized" or not fully explained --- "shoplifting or a fake ID, there's an issue about what happened there," she said. From the students' perspective, it was a case of one student running into Tappan Square while being pursued by Allyn D. Gibson, Ambar said.

Sexton notes that bottles of shoplifted alcohol were dropped after they were confronted -- and this is all on videotape from police body-cams.

...

As for the issue of an apology, Ambar told alumni that "goes to the issue of race." Without going into specifics, she said members of the college community have had "a variety of experiences with Gibson's -- ranging from "wonderful" to "not wonderful."

"Those different lived experiences are absoutely true, but they are in conflict with each other," Ambar told the alumni. "The college didnít issue an apology because it was hearing these different perspectives and didnít think it should apologize for issues it didnít create."

The president of a school facing a $25 million judgment for aiding student efforts to label Gibson's Bakery a racist institution is insinuating on a conference call with alumni that Gibsonís is a racist institution. So no lessons learned at Oberlin I guess.

In that way, Oberlin's faculty is exactly like its students. No one learns anything at Oberlin. It's an institution of higher ignorance.
