PA Gov. to Sue NCAA

    STATE COLLEGE, PA - JULY 22:  An area of the statue of former Penn State University football coach Joe Paterno stood sits empty after it was removed by workers outside Beaver Stadium on July 22, 2012 in State College, Pennsylvania. Penn State's president Rodney Erickson made the decision Sunday to remove the statue in the wake of the child sex scandal of former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

    Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett said on Tuesday that he plans to file a lawsuit in federal court against the NCAA for the harsh sanctions imposed on Penn State after the Jerry Sandusky scandal. Agreed upon in July, the NCAA’s sanctions banned the school from participating in bowl games for four years, reduced football scholarships, stripped late coach Joe Paterno and the school of 112 wins, among other harsh penalties. The attorney general–elect, Kathleen Kane, who is scheduled to be sworn in on Jan. 15, has announced plans to look into why it took the state three years to investigate Sandusky. Corbett was attorney general for two of those years, 2009–11.
