I just have so many questions and so many doubts about the upcoming report.  None of the people interviewed were under oath, people could decline to be interviewed and etc. What about parts that may have been left out?  Of course, things can also be taken out of context too.  Is this a he said she said?   And how can you have a fair and impartial report when the parties reporting are paid by the BOT?  I believe more questions will be raised than will be answered.  But I guess I'll have to wait like everyone else to see the report.

Report to shed light on PSU scandal
July 6, 2012

 ::snipping2::
The findings of the Freeh Group's report likely will have an impact on the civil lawsuits filed by victims against Penn State as well as the legacy of coach Paterno, who died in January of lung cancer at the age of 85, two months after the Board of Trustees fired him for failing to show leadership in the Sandusky matter.

Pennsylvania's attorney general, Linda Kelly, said last November that Paterno, who testified before the Sandusky grand jury for seven minutes in January 2011, was not a target of the criminal inquiry. At that time, a handful of 11-year-old emails that emerged during the Freeh Group inquiry were not known by prosecutors. In fact, the prosecutors had thought mistakenly that the incident in the showers occurred in March 2002, not February 2001. After being discovered in recent months by the Freeh Group, the emails were turned over to the attorney general's office.

It is unclear how the new emails will affect the upcoming criminal trials of Curley and Schultz. State prosecutors wrote in a recent court filing in the Curley-Schultz case that they had obtained emails from both men and others "that contradict their testimony before the grand jury" and they also recently had obtained a file that Schultz kept about Sandusky.

Lawyers for Curley and Schultz filed a motion June 15 requesting a wide array of material from prosecutors, including records relating to Wendell Courtney, a former Penn State chief counsel who resigned as lawyer to The Second Mile last November after Sandusky's arrest.
 ::snipping2::
A spokesman for the Freeh Group had said that its investigation had discovered the emails and that they were provided to the Pennsylvania attorney general's office. "These materials will be fully discussed in the report & and beyond that, Judge Freeh and the investigation team has no further comment." A Penn State spokesman did not return messages.

This week, the Paterno family defended the coach's reputation and questioned the motives of the people leaking the material, which they say is out of context and designed to put the coach in the worst light. In a statement released Monday, Wick Sollers, a Paterno family attorney said: "With the leaking of selective emails over the last few days, it is clear that someone in a position of authority is not interested in a fair or thorough investigation." The Paterno family has called on the attorney general and Freeh to release all emails and records to allow the public to see all the evidence.

A source who has reviewed all the early 2001 emails said the few that have been leaked "are definitely out of context. We think the one that was released was the worst one for everybody."

Wisconsin: Judge blasts 'frivolous' lawsuits against Jerry Sandusky
By Ed Treleven
Wisconsin State Journal
July 7, 2012

A spate of hoax lawsuits filed late last month in federal courts around the country -- including Madison -- against former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky appears to have been the work of a serial litigant who has filed thousands of specious federal lawsuits.
 ::snipping2::

The lawsuit is believed to be the work of Jonathan Lee Riches, Conley wrote. Purporting to be "Jonathan Bollinger," a cousin to former University of Wisconsin quarterback Brooks Bollinger, he claimed in a lawsuit filed June 28 in U.S. District Court in Madison that Sandusky had molested him at Camp Randall Stadium during a football game. The lawsuit sought a restraining order to keep Sandusky away from him -- no tall order considering Sandusky, found guilty on June 22 of 45 counts of child sexual abuse, will likely spend the rest of his life in prison.

Probe eyes Paterno's preference for handling problems internally
By Susan Candiotti and Ross Levitt, CNN
July 9, 2012


The late Joe Paterno's apparent preference for handling issues involving his football program internally is being examined.

Dr. Vicky Triponey  Photo Credit:  Penn State

(CNN) -- Former FBI Director Louis Freeh's investigation into possible wrongdoing at Penn State University appears to be examining football coach Joe Paterno's apparent preference for handling scandalous issues internally, and what role that may have played in a potential cover-up involving former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, convicted on 45 counts of child sex abuse on June 22.

Freeh's group has been poring over internal Penn State e-mails and has interviewed a past university official about the way Paterno influenced a variety of disciplinary matters, according to a source with knowledge of the investigation. Freeh is leading an internal review of Penn State's handling of the scandal that is unrelated to criminal investigations.

The e-mails obtained by CNN from a source familiar with the investigation, and first reported by the Wall Street Journal, show Paterno wielded power that went well beyond the realm of football or even the athletic department.
 ::snipping2::
In 2007, after a widely reported incident where more than a dozen players crashed an off-campus party and started a violent brawl, Paterno appears to send an e-mail, through his assistant, to Spanier that says, "I want to make sure everyone understands that the discipline of the players involved will be handled by me as soon as I am comfortable that I know all the facts."

Paterno's attorneys have said the coach didn't use e-mail. The exchange shows while he may not have had his own e-mail account, his assistant would still send e-mails for him.

Paterno planned to punish the team by forcing them to perform 10 hours of community service and clean up the stadium after home games, according to a memo provided by a source familiar with the investigation.

After Triponey tried to discipline football players in the same manner as other students, she was harassed both online and at her home, according to a source with knowledge of the investigation. On her front lawn somebody put up a "for sale" sign. Police installed a surveillance camera. In the end, the source says Spanier suggested she think about her future at Penn State, and she resigned.

After Triponey left Penn State, the university changed its discipline policy involving off-campus incidents. Its current code of conduct says it only applies to "off campus conduct that affects a Substantial University interest."

The Freeh goup and the university declined comment on this story.
 ::snipping2::
The 2001, 2005, and 2007 e-mail exchanges are among many now under investigation by the Freeh group. The e-mails revealed so far suggest coach Paterno preferred to handle bad behavior internally, a preference that may have influenced a decision by university officials not to report Sandusky to authorities in 2001 and allowed him to continue to abuse young boys.

Graham Spanier's lawsuit against Penn State moves to court in August
July 9, 2012

BELLEFONTE — A judge will hear arguments next month about former Penn State President Graham Spanier’s request for access to his old emails before meeting with the university’s third-party team investigating Jerry Sandusky.

The hearing for preliminary objections will be at 10:30 a.m. Aug. 17 in the main courtroom of the Centre County Courthouse.

Spanier sued Penn State in May, saying he wants to read the emails so he can prepare for an interview with the investigation led by former FBI director Louis Freeh. Freeh’s report is expected this month, possibly as early as this week.

Senior Judge Paul Millin, of Forest County, has been assigned by the state Supreme Court to preside over the civil suit. All of Centre County’s judges have recused themselves because of their connections to Penn State.

In his suit, Spanier said the university has refused to give him access to the emails. The time frame in question was 1998 to 2004.

But the university’s attorneys objected, saying the emails can’t be disclosed because they are a part of secret grand jury proceedings. The emails were turned up by the Freeh investigation and given to the Attorney General’s Office.

Penn State scandal: Thoughts on the latest developments

PSU alumni and students - we need another voice on this issue, other than those who are determined to deny any accountability or responsibility for the failure to act, the failure to notify the police, and the failure to notify the child welfare organization in Pennsylvania regarding Mr. Sandusky's actions (of which he has been convicted in a court of law).
 
We need a voice of responsibility that is not focused on denial, defense, or misdirection, but that accepts that there was wrong-doing and calls for accountability, responsibility, and change at PSU to reject the environment to allowed these actions over a decade. 
 
I urge you to become part of that voice of responsibility, and visit our new web page and petition for PSU Alumni and Students for Children's Rights and Dignity at http://www.psuchildrights.com
 
A legacy of responsibility, accountability, and unwavering commitment to children's human rights - should be the only legacy we are concerned about at Penn State.

Will emails from Penn State VP of Student Affairs about Paterno trigger NCAA?
By Bruce Feldman | Senior College Football Columnist
July 9, 2012

The issue of whether the NCAA should get involved in the Penn State scandal connected to the school's handling of the Jerry Sandusky situation is an intriguing one. Many have reasoned that no matter how distasteful the actions of Penn State's leadership may have been, this still is not an NCAA matter or that these were real-world crimes, which are above the NCAA's head.

On Monday, CNN reported that part of the investigation run by former FBI Direction Louis Freeh is examining how Joe Paterno pushed to handle scandalous issues internally and that could spark the NCAA's entry point into this matter. In focus: the university e-mails explicitly illustrating the level of power and influence the long-time football coach had that extended far beyond just football at Penn State.

Support gathering to require more transparency at Penn State
By Eric Boehm
July 9, 2012

HARRISBURG — Since former Penn State University football coach Jerry Sandusky’s arrest last November, state lawmakers have tried to make Penn State University open up many of its internal documents as a condition of receiving taxpayer support.
 ::snipping2::
Revelations that the university knew some information about Sandusky’s crimes, some of which were committed on campus, but did not report them to authorities have encouraged lawmakers to push the university to publicly disclose internal communication between some officials.

That attempt thus far has failed. With no new transparency requirements, Penn State will receive $228 million from Pennsylvania taxpayers between now and July 2013, not one dime less than it received last fiscal year.

But transparency measures may be lurking on the horizon. State lawmakers, including Rep. Eugene DePasquale, D-York, will begin the fall session with their sights set on upping Penn State’s transparency requirements.
 ::snipping2::
DePasquale’s House Bill 2051 would have brought Penn State under the state’s Right-to-Know Law. But it never made it out of the State Government Committee when he introduced it late last year.

Chairman of the State Government Committee, Rep. Daryl Metcalfe, R-Butler, said that he did not recall DePasquale ever consulting him about pushing HB 2051 through committee. He added, though, that he also believes Penn State needs to have stricter compliance standards.

“We don’t have any idea how much has been spent over the years with the whole Sandusky issue,” Metcalfe said. “It’s very offensive and alarming that we don’t have more transparency and accountability.”

The Right-to-Know Law, also known as Act 3, requires all government agencies to make public most internal documents, including emails, upon request. But Penn State, as a “state-related” university, is under no legal obligation to release emails to the media or the public.

Pennsylvania’s four state-related schools — Penn State, Temple, Pitt, and Lincoln — are taxpayer assisted but independently managed. Under Act 3, they must release the salaries of officers and directors along with IRS Form 990, which provides general information on an organization’s mission, programs and finances.

At any of Pennsylvania’s 14 state-run schools, however, all internal documents and emails are presumed to be open to the public unless the school successfully can argue otherwise.
Penn State’s lack of transparency was highlighted last week when CNN leaked some internal Penn State emails pointing to a possible cover-up between former President Graham Spanier and other ranking Penn State officials. Last December, Penn State rejected a request by CNN to obtain a 1998 campus police report on Sandusky regarding a complaint by a young boy’s mother.

In November, Sunshine Review and WikiFOIA, two pro-transparency nonprofit groups, released a report that listed Penn State among the least transparent state universities in the country. That report blamed the lack of transparency on the school’s exemption from the Right-to-Know Law.

Gov. Tom Corbett, responding to questions at a news conference last week, said that although he expects lawmakers to work with Penn State on transparency, he understands Penn State’s concern about making public what it considers valuable information. Corbett is a member of the Penn State Board of Trustees.

“I believe in transparency,” Corbett said. “At the same time I understand that there is concern among the state-related (schools), particularly the research institutions, as to protection of formulas and intellectual property secrets.”

Erik Arneson, spokesman for Sen. Dominic Pileggi, said the Chester Republican hopes to take up transparency legislation before November elections.

He acknowledged, though, that any change to Right-to-Know needs to maintain the distinction between state-run schools and taxpayer-assisted schools.

“There is obviously a difference between the state-owned universities and the state-related universities,” Arneson said. “Having different application of the Right-to-Know Law is a fundamental premise.”

 ::snipping2::

The commonwealth’s state-related universities will receive nearly $515 million in taxpayer funds this year.

An audit of the university’s 2010-11 financial statements, conducted by the accounting firm Deloitte & Touche LLP, showed that Penn State got about 7.3 percent ($334 million) of its $4.5 billion operating revenue from state taxpayers. An audit of its 2011-12 financials will be available in the fall.

Four years ago, state-related universities successfully lobbied for an exemption from parts of the Right-to-Know Law, arguing that attracting donors would be more difficult if they thought their personal information could be made public.

Lisa Powers, director of Penn State’s Department of Public Information, said that the university does not want to be forced to divulge more information than it already does.

More Leaked Emails Reveal More About Joe Paterno’s Preference To Play By His Own Rules. But Where’s It All Going?
By Dom Cosinteno
July 9, 2012

We know the forthcoming report on Louis Freeh's investigation into Penn State is going to be "very tough on" Joe Paterno. We also know the complaints of Vicky Triponey, Penn State's former vice president for student affairs, will be included in that report. Triponey's clashes with Paterno over the discipline of PSU football players prior to her resignation in September 2007 were first reported back in November, just after Jerry Sandusky's initial arrest. But now CNN has obtained the actual contents of Triponey's emails to university officials, and they reveal the depth of her frustration over Paterno's efforts to have his own code of justice for Penn State players:

Freeh's Penn State investigation may delve far beyond Sandusky
July 10, 2012

Last year, some factions of Penn State's faculty senate questioned whether Mr. Freeh's probe would provide a truly independent assessment of the university's failings.

That concern continues.


But Larry Cata Backer, the body's president and an international affairs professor, said Friday he was hopeful the Freeh group's findings would take into account not only the past actions of athletics officials but also of university trustees.

"We're hoping it's another step in getting some closure for this whole scandal," he said.

Mr. Freeh has not said when his group will release its findings.

In a statement posted earlier this month on the board of trustees' website, Karen B. Peetz, chairman of the board, said the university's trustees "eagerly await" Mr. Freeh's findings.

They "will allow us to take even more important steps towards accountability, healing and making our campuses as safe as possible," she said.
