Paterno family, others at PSU sue NCAA
Question of the Day
Freeh accused Paterno and three former university officials of covering up allegations against Sandusky, who was sentenced to at least 30 years in prison after being convicted last year of dozens of criminal counts of abuse including assaults on and off campus.
Paterno died in January 2012. His family and the former school officials have vehemently denied they took part in a cover-up.
The university board as a whole entity has never formally discussed, nor has it voted on Freeh’s report, though its members have embraced many of Freeh’s recommendations to improve university governance and procedures.
The penalties against Penn State included a $60 million fine. The NCAA also vacated 111 wins from Paterno’s record, meaning he would no longer hold the title of major college football’s winningest coach.
The lawsuit also would ask for unspecified damages and court costs, Sollers said, though the family would donate any net proceeds to charity.
“The broader goal is to get the truth out,” Sollers told The Associated Press in an interview Wednesday. “This narrative that’s in public that was perpetuated by the NCAA’s adoption of the deeply flawed Freeh report … cannot stand.”
The family planned to post the complaint on http://www.paterno.com after it was filed.
