Default Gibson's Bakery awarded $11 million vs Oberlin...

TL;DR:

After the 2016 election, an underage Oberlin student was caught trying to purchase and/or shoplift wine. He was confronted. Gibson's bakery was then accused of racism. Oberlin college, the jury found, assisted in protests and the assertion that the bakery was racist.

So the bakery sued the university.

And they won $11 million. They could win up to $22 million more (if I'm not mistaken) in punitive damages.
