PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Several media organizations want a judge to make public sealed court records in a dispute between Penn State and an insurance company over settlement payments to people who said former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky abused them as children.

The Associated Press and three other news organizations filed a motion Friday asking a Philadelphia court for access to the records a judge referred to last week in a public court order.

Judge Gary Glazer’s opinion says Pennsylvania Manufacturers’ Association Insurance Co. alleged that a boy told head coach Joe Paterno in 1976 that Sandusky had molested him and that two assistant coaches witnessed abuse of other children in the 1980s.

Sandusky maintains his innocence. Paterno has died.

The AP, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Philadelphia Media Network and PA Media Group are seeking access to the documents.
