Spanier Seeks To Delay Civil Suit Against Louis Freeh



Former Penn State president Graham Spanier wants to delay his defamation lawsuit against Louis Freeh until the criminal case against Spanier and other former top university officials plays out.
 
A stay was requested Monday in the pending civil case against the former FBI director whose firm handled Penn State’s internal investigation into the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse scandal and implicated Spanier and others in a cover-up.
 
An attorney for Spanier says her client would be prejudiced if the civil matter must proceed before the criminal case is resolved.
 
Ainslie argued that failure to grant a stay would “unnecessarily force multiple witnesses to choose between testifying in this action” or exercising their Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination, “thereby leading to an incomplete record and allowing the court to draw adverse inferences against Spanier.”
