#1 ...Gotta remember - Oberlin exists in a little bubble in southern Lorain County, OH. They are completely and utterly convinced of their moral and educational superiority and have NO idea what to do next, except double down.
And it gets better, friends - their insurance company is strongly hinting that they ain't gonna pay. Stay tuned...

#2 Oberlin does exist in a little bubble. From the inside, Oberlin thinks it is the center of the universe. From the outside, they are seen as a bunch of academic elites and snobs who consider themselves societies betters. The jurors, most likely, are the larger other side of this mutual animus. Town vs. gown.

#3 The punitive damages numbers need to be huge. The precedent set will echo in academic administrations nationwide Nothing is more sacred than endowments and tenure for any professors who endanger it will be meaningless.

#4 their insurance company is strongly hinting that they ain't gonna pay.
