NCAA vs PA lawsuit to reverse sanctions
I'm not sure how many people are familiar with this. Since I grew up near to State College, PA and was surrounded by Nittany Lion fans, it's a big issue around.
Basically, what's going on now is that Gov Corbett of PA is sueing the NCAA in order to remove the actions brought against Penn State as a result of the Sandusky crimes.
Governor announces lawsuit vs NCAA over Penn State scandal - Yahoo! News
Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett announced on Wednesday he will ask a federal court to throw out the multimillion-dollar sanctions levied by the NCAA against Pennsylvania State University regarding the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal.
"This was a criminal matter, not a violation of NCAA rules," Corbett said at a news conference, calling the NCAA sanctions "overreaching and unlawful."
Sandusky, Penn State's former defensive coordinator, was convicted in June of 45 counts of sexually abusing 10 boys over 15 years, some in the football team's showers. He was sentenced to 30 to 60 years in prison.
In July, the NCAA, the governing body of U.S. collegiate sports, fined Penn State $60 million and voided its football victories for the past 14 seasons in an unprecedented rebuke for the school's failure to stop assistant coach Sandusky's sexual abuse of children.
Corbett said a lawsuit, to be filed later on Wednesday, will ask a federal court to throw out all Sandusky-related sanctions against Penn State.
What do you think? Should they be tossed? Or should Penn State be held to the ruling?
