Judge Named in Paterno Family's Lawsuit vs NCAA



A judge has been named to preside over the lawsuit filed by the family of former Penn State coach Joe Paterno and others against the NCAA over penalties imposed by the organization for the school's handling of the Jerry Sandusky scandal.
 
Pennsylvania judicial officials said Thursday the case was assigned to Senior Judge John B. Leete from Potter County in the state's rural northern tier. The assignment by Supreme Court Chief Justice Ronald Castille comes nearly a month after Centre County's president judge requested an out-of-county jurist.
 
The lawsuit by Paterno's family, several trustees, former players and others argues college sports' governing body bypassed its own rules in taking action against Penn State. The penalties include a four-year post-season ban and a $60-million fine.                                                                                                                                                           
Paterno died early last year.
