Oberlin College Libel Case

"Free speech in this country died a little bit in Ohio this month. An appeal is likely, so perhaps mourning can wait. But those who are celebrating do not understand the grave risks that this ruling poses to the speech that they value."

Professor Len Niehoff, '84, in a Detroit News op-ed about a libel verdict against Oberlin College, in which a jury held it was responsible for student protesters' accusations of racism against a local business.
