After more than three hours of listening to arguments from both parties, a judge said Tuesday he would decide later whether to allow a lawsuit against the NCAA filed by the family of longtime Penn State football coach Joe Paterno and others to go forward.
Judge John B. Leete did not say when he will issue a written opinion.
A lawyer for college sports' governing body urged him to throw out the complaint.
Leete is considering a host of issues, including whether Penn State itself is an indispensable party to the lawsuit, which challenges the NCAA penalties imposed on Penn State as a result of the Jerry Sandusky child-molestation scandal.
The Paterno family - joined by four university trustees, four faculty members, nine former players and two former coaches - allege breach of contract, contract interference, defamation, civil conspiracy and commercial disparagement.
Paterno's estate and family and the other plaintiffs filed the lawsuit in May, saying the NCAA had no authority to impose sanctions based on criminal matters that were not related to the sports it oversees.
Tuesday's arguments also centered on the procedures the NCAA used to determine penalties.
