A federal judge on Thursday threw out the governor's lawsuit against the NCAA over sanctions against Penn State related to Jerry Sandusky, calling his argument "a Hail Mary pass" that easily warranted dismissal.
U.S. Middle District Judge Yvette Kane's decision put an early end to the antitrust lawsuit Governor Tom Corbett filed in January in which he sought to overturn a $60-million fine, a four-year bowl ban, scholarship limits and other penalties.
Judge Kane said she could not "find any factual allegations supporting Corbett's allegation of 'concerted action' that might nudge its conspiracy claim into 'plausible' territory."
The NCAA said it was "exceedingly pleased" and hoped the ruling would help heal divisions caused by the Sandusky scandal. Corbett expressed disappointment and said he feels strongly the claims he raised were compelling and deserved a thorough review by the courts.
