Pennsylvania Governor Will Sue the NCAA



Text  



We’ll see if this goes anywhere as Penn State isn’t party to the actual lawsuit. If I were Governor Corbett, I’d be a little concerned about what other information the NCAA has that they can put out there as well as what the NCAA can ask Penn State for during the discovery process:

The commonwealth will sue the NCAA over the sanctions imposed on Penn State resulting from the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.

Gov. Tom Corbett will announce Wednesday that he is filing a federal lawsuit against the NCAA for its sanctions against Penn State, according to a news release from the Governor’s Office.

Corbett will hold an 11 a.m. news conference Wednesday in the Alumni Fireside Lounge of the Nittany Lion Inn.

The state is acting without the university in preparing the lawsuit. Penn State spokesman David La Torre told the CDT that the university is not aware of the lawsuit.

University trustee Anthony Lubrano also said he didn’t have much information on the lawsuit.

“If true, I’m glad that the governor has finally come to agree with my point of view that the NCAA had no authority to intervene in this matter,” he said Tuesday. “I do wonder why it took him so long to come to that point of view.”

The rest here.
