Oberlin College has recently taken legal action as part of their effort to silence journalism by website Legal Insurrection that has portrayed the school in a negative light.
Legal Insurrection, an online legal blog and news site, reported this week that Oberlin College has filed a subpoena against the site, demanding its communications with confidential sources for the site’s past reporting on the college.
The subpoena primarily focuses on a Legal Insurrection report about Gibson’s Bakery, which filed a lawsuit against the college after college officials encouraged students to boycott the bakery.
The College has decided that they should request the communications between Gibson’s Bakery and Legal Insurrection.
Breitbart News reported this week that Oberlin College is facing “negative” ratings from credit agencies, potentially as a result of their sympathies for social justice activism.
