Penn State alleges in a new lawsuit that its insurance carrier has not been honoring its legal obligation to cover claims related to sexual misconduct by former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.
The university said in the 18-page complaint filed in Bellefonte on Tuesday that it has been sued or contacted by 29 claimants but that the Pennsylvania Manufacturers' Association Insurance Company has not provided coverage.
The lawsuit alleges breach of contract and bad faith, and seeks damages and costs.
The filing lists five lawsuits and letters from attorneys for 24 other claimants who have contacted the university related to Sandusky.
It said the school has been a customer of the Blue Bell-based insurance company for more than 50 years. The lawsuit said PMA has denied coverage in some cases and failed to issue coverage determinations in others.
Pennsylvania Manufacturers' spokeswoman Diane Nafranowicz said Wednesday the company would not comment.
