Gibson vs Oberlin: Update (Breaking)

Yesterday, we wrote about the unfortunate case of the college versus the bakery:

"A jury has awarded Gibson’s Bakery and its owners $11 million in compensatory damages against Oberlin College, for libel, intentional interference with business, and intentional infliction of emotional distress."

We noted that the trial to determine whether (and for how much) punitive damages had started, and that these could amount to a tripling of the original amount.

We noted at the time that it's unlikely that these would be covered, should it come about.

Well, we're about to find out:

"Oberlin College hit with maximum PUNITIVE DAMAGES (capped at $22 million by law) in Gibson’s Bakery case"

That's gonna leave a mark.
