Federal Judge Weighs Fate of Corbett Suit vs. NCAA



A federal judge says she'll decide in the next couple weeks whether to dismiss Governor Tom Corbett's antitrust lawsuit against the NCAA over penalties against Penn State.
 
U.S. Judge Yvette Kane had pointed questions for both sides during a nearly two-hour hearing Monday.
 
Corbett says the NCAA went too far in getting Penn State to agree last summer to a $60-million fine, a multiyear ban on postseason football play and a temporary reduction in scholarships.
 
The university agreed to the sanctions over its handling of the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal. Penn State isn't a party to the lawsuit.
 
Sandusky, the school's longtime assistant football coach, is serving a 30- to 60-year prison sentence after being convicted of 45 counts of child sexual abuse.
