Breaking News

10/11/2022. The page views at have surpassed 28,906, of which many are international. The average number of pages a visitor has looked at is over 3. Considering the limited appeal of the OberlinChaos subject matter, JD is pleasantly surprised that this blog has received so much worldwide support.

Some Chinese followers have made it past China’s censorship to read OberlinChaos. In contrast, there have been unsuccessful efforts originating in China to alter or deface OberlinChaos.

9/30/2022.The Oberlin College BOT is deciding to end 180+ years of faculty independence (The Finney Compact). This will reduce the faculty to hired help, whose new job will be to shut up and follow orders. The BOT has the authority to kill the 180+- year-old Finney Compact without the consent of anyone else. They are expected to vote to kill much of Oberlin’s important history on 10/7/2022 at a secret time and place.

9/11/2022. The Oberlin College BOT has humbled itself and agreed to pay the Gibsons the court-ordered settlement. As one would expect from such a sanctimonious group, the percent being paid by insurance has not been revealed. Why should it be? It is not the BOT’s money, but only money from dead benefactors!

5/16/2022. Oberlin College is once again appealing the Gibson Bakery decision.

4/02/2022. The appellate court has finally rendered a decision on the Gibson case appeal – 17 months after hearing the oral arguments in the case. The trial court’s verdict favoring Gibson’s stands.

10/01/2021. Yesterday Lorain County Common Pleas Court Judge Rinaldi ordered the private Facebook posts of Allyn D. Gibson unsealed, allowing anyone to see them. It is unclear if those posts have any LEGAL relevance to the Gibson’s Bakery v Oberlin College lawsuit since Allyn was not a party to the original lawsuit. We should soon find out if the suit by the “media group” to have the Facebook posts made public contains relevant and damaging evidence or is just sleazy voyeurism into Allyn’s private life.

The initial news summaries of the Facebook posts contain a few remarks that appear to be racist, even after allowing that in some quarters, everything a white person says or does is racist.

8/22/2021. The Gibson Bakery circus continues. The Cleveland Media group is petitioning the Ohio Supreme Court to issue a writ of mandamus ordering the Lorain County Court to unseal Allyn Gibson’s private Facebook posts. Allyn is not an owner of Gibson’s Bakery and was not a party in the lawsuit against the College. Cleveland Media claims it is acting on its own and is not fronting for Oberlin College. Hard to top that one.

Earlier. The request to the Appellate Court to unseal and publish Allyn D. Gibson’s privately posted Facebook posts was denied. Allyn was not a party in the original lawsuit, was only an employee of the Bakery, and was not an owner of the Bakery.

7/27/2021. The Ninth District Appellate Court decision in the Gibson Bakery v Oberlin Case was expected on or around 2/8/21. One of the judges on the panel hearing the case lost her re-election bid and was off the court before the panel decided the case. The court appointed a new judge to the panel in May 2021. Most likely, the new panel will review the testimony in the Zoom video and briefs of the earlier hearing and decide based on that. The court has several other options for handling the case. See related OberlinChaos posts.

On top of bullying Gibson’s Bakery, Oberlin College has picked stupid and avoidable fights with the Student Co-op Association. The College has apparently also negotiated with the UAW in bad faith.

The purpose of this blog is to tell the other side of the Gibson’s Bakery, OSCA, the Kosher-Halal Co-op, and UAW stories to Oberlin Alumni lest they believe the College’s heavily redacted and whitewashed version of events. Please tell your fellow Obies how the Trustee-Politburo has damaged the College’s reputation, the worth of our degrees, the Gibsons, the college’s union workers, K-H, and the OSCA Co-op tradition. No pandemic, sleazy PR, or conflating of libel and slander with free speech can divert attention from the BOT’s negligence in these matters. Speak up and insist that the BOT arrest its compulsive, neo-Puritan righteousness, which has already eradicated either THOUSANDS of $36,000 scholarships or 225 Steinway concert grand pianos — just to wreck a tiny bakery, a cooperating union, K-H, and the OSCA Student Co-op!

07/01/20… A Call to Arms at Oberlin College

The amicus briefs filed in the appellate court to support Oberlin College’s continuing vendetta against tiny Gibson’s Bakery are predicated on a false assumption and are an embarrassment to the very liberalism Oberlin College has always stood for. Shame on all.

06/7/20… Self-Inflicted UAW Labor Trouble.

The College has filed its somewhat absurd appeal of the Gibson’s Bakery jury verdict. New students promise war to save the UAW. Student activists derive an Orwellian Animal Farm style readjustment of the College’s “Learning and Labor” motto. They think this will keep the United Auto Workers from being busted by the College. A College employee makes a racially inflammatory social media post. They may even be planning to put thumbtacks on President Ambar’s chair! Isn’t all this enough for one post?

05/30/20… Updated 9/10. 2 Oberlin College student sex incidents go to court.
