Pa. governor sues NCAA over Penn State scandal

Tom Corbett wants sanctions against university thrown out

The governor of Pennsylvania has filed suit against the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), claiming the sanctions against the Pennsylvania State University over the Jerry Sandusky child abuse scandal will devastate the state’s economy.

Yesterday, Governor Tom Corbett filed the suit asking the court to throw out the sanctions, which include a $60 million fine against Penn State. He says in his filing that the sanctions are “overreaching and unlawful.”
