Good for Gibson’s Bakery in Ohio. the Ohio Supreme court is denying Oberlin College’s appeal of a verdict against them for slandering the bakery as “racist”. After complaining to the college about the students, Oberlin did nothing claiming it was “free speech”. This was speech though that was causing harm. So, Gibson’s sued and won, even at the appeals level. Now that the Ohio Supreme Court has refused to hear another appeal, it looks like Oberlin is going to have to pay the bakery $36 million. Others may want to stop and consider before attempting to ruin someone’s reputation by throwing around irresponsible epithets of racism, where none exist.
