Judges Consider Tossing $60-Million Penn State Lawsuit



A panel of Pennsylvania judges will soon decide whether to side with the NCAA and throw out a lawsuit filed by a state senator and the state treasurer over the massive fine imposed on Penn State for its handling of the Jerry Sandusky scandal.
 
The legal issue before Commonwealth Court is the NCAA's "preliminary objections" to the lawsuit, which seeks to force Penn State to pay the $60-million into a state government account.
 
The lawsuit by state Senator Jake Corman and Treasurer Rob McCord is part of an effort by many of Pennsylvania's top elected officials to ensure the money will be spent within the state rather than throughout the country, although in either case it will be spent on child abuse prevention and for its victims.
 
A Corman-sponsored law enacted early this year would keep it in Pennsylvania and have it distributed by the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency. The first of five $12-million payments has been set aside by Penn State but not paid to the NCAA
