A jury has handed down an $11 million verdict with another $33 million in punitive damages against Oberlin for defaming a local mom-and-pop store. The college thought that it could call the store racist with impunity, after a black student with two friends tried to shoplift wine from the store,and were pursued and arrested. Students immediately began protesting the shop on the theory that, because the store stopped black kids from shoplifting, it must be racist. The jury disagreed. Was this a good verdict? Professor William Jacobson (Legal Insurrection) is here to talk about the latest from the Social Justice Warrior movement.
