Commonwealth Court Won't Toss Fight Over PSU's $60-Million Fine



A state court says Pennsylvania officials can pursue their bid to keep Penn State's $60-million fine over the Jerry Sandusky scandal in the state.
 
The Commonwealth Court ruling is a setback for the NCAA, which wants the lawsuit filed by state officials thrown out.
 
The NCAA's 2012 consent decree with Penn State steers the $60-million fine into an endowment for child sexual-assault programs. The organization says a later Pennsylvania law that orders the money be used in the state violates the initial agreement.
 
However, the court ruling says the NCAA settlement only describes how the money should be spent -- not where. Judge Anne Covey's ruling allows a lawsuit filed by state Senator Jake Corman and Treasurer Rob McCord to go forward.
