Scott Gerber v. Ohio Northern University, et al.

Case Number: 2023 1107 CVH, Common Pleas Court of Hardin County, Ohio


Dr. Scott Gerber, a tenured professor at Ohio Northern University, was removed from his classroom in the presence of students and told to resign or face termination proceedings following his vocal opposition to the University’s DEI hiring practices. Gerber made complaints about the hiring committee’s sex and race-based preferences for faculty to both the University’s administration and the EEOC. Dr. Gerber refused to resign, and the University has since defamed him, issuing a press release that labeled him a threat to the physical safety of faculty, staff, and students.

In the months since the commencement of this case, the termination proceedings of Dr. Gerber have reached their predetermined outcome: Ohio Northern University terminated Dr. Gerber without cause, in breach of his employment contract.


AFL is now representing Dr. Gerber and has sued Ohio Northern University for damages, a declaratory judgment that the University breached its contract with Dr. Gerber, and for Dr. Gerber’s reinstatement to his position as a tenured professor of law at Ohio Northern University.


This case is currently being litigated.
