Pennsylvania's Governor to Sue NCAA Over Penn State Sanctioning

by Associated Press posted Jan 1 2013 7:23PM
  HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett says he plans to sue the NCAA in federal court over sanctions imposed against Penn State in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse scandal.
     The Republican governor has scheduled a news conference for Wednesday in State College to announce the filing in U.S. District Court in Harrisburg.
     The sanctions were agreed to by the university in July. They included a $60 million fine that would be used nationally to finance child abuse prevention grants. State and federal lawmakers have raised objections to the money being spent outside Pennsylvania.
     A message seeking comment on the expected lawsuit was left with the NCAA on Tuesday.
     Sandusky was a Penn State assistant football coach. He was convicted of abusing boys and was sentenced to decades in prison. He maintains his innocence.
