Penn State Antitrust Saga Continues

by Associated Press posted Feb 7 2013 7:09PM
  HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - The NCAA says it wants a judge to throw out the federal antitrust lawsuit Pennsylvania's governor filed against it over Penn State's $60 million fine and other penalties resulting from the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal.
     College sports' governing body said in a filing Thursday it disagrees with just about every allegation in the complaint against it initiated by Gov. Tom Corbett last month.
     The NCAA says the penalties imposed under a July consent decree with the university aren't related to regulation of economic activity, so antitrust law doesn't apply. It also argues Corbett lacks standing to sue.
     It calls the governor's lawsuit "an inappropriate attempt to drag the federal courts into an intra-state political dispute."
     Corbett has said the NCAA overstepped its authority. His spokesman says lawyers will review the NCAA's filing.
