Let's see . . . who is making money in all of this . . . the attorneys of course!
Not saying they haven't worked hard, but after knowing what the Penn State president made . . . there's a lot of money floating around somewhere.  No wonder athletes assume they should make millions, just saying.

Former Penn St. players offer support for lawsuit
June 17, 2013

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — About 325 former Penn State players have signed a statement supporting the lawsuit filed by the family of former coach Joe Paterno and other former players seeking to overturn NCAA sanctions against the football program for the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.
Former player Brian Masella released the letter Monday in support of the lawsuit, which was also filed last month by some coaches, trustees and faculty. Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Paul Posluszny, and former NFL quarterbacks Kerry Collins and Todd Blackledge are among the notable names who signed on to the statement.
Masella said he and a few other former players organized the statement on their own after some of the plaintiffs explained their position in a letter to former players and sought their support. He stressed the statement had no connection to the official Football Letterman's Club.
The ex-players in the statement said they stood with the others in the case in demanding "fairness, due process, truth, and a just outcome. Everyone — Sandusky's victims, Penn Staters, and the public at large — deserves to know the complete truth."
As in the lawsuit, the former players in the statement took issue with the NCAA basing its strict sanctions on what they called the flawed report by former FBI director Louis Freeh on the scandal for the school.

NCAA seeks to have suit over Penn State fine money tossed
Attorneys for college sports governing body argue that attempt to keep the $60 million in Pennsylvania is fatally flawed.

June 19, 2013|By Peter Hall, Of The Morning Call

HARRISBURG — Weeks after defeating one lawsuit over its Penn State fine, the NCAA was back in court Wednesday arguing that a state court should reject an effort to keep in Pennsylvania the $60 million sanction over the Jerry Sandusky sex-abuse scandal.

An attorney for the National Collegiate Athletic Association argued before Commonwealth Court that both the suit by state Sen. Jake Corman and Treasurer Rob McCord and a law meant to enforce it are fatally flawed.



Corman, who helped pass the law requiring such fines to go to the state treasury, and McCord, who is required to enforce it, are simply trying to ensure accountability for the money, their lawyer said.

Attorney Matthew Haverstick said that the General Assembly took action because Penn State's agreement with the college sports governing body was too vague about how and where the money would be spent.

"It doesn't put any brake on where $60 million that may be directly traceable to the taxpayers might go," Haverstick told a panel of seven Commonwealth Court judges.

Earlier this month, a federal judge in Harrisburg rejected Gov. Tom Corbett's suit to overturn the NCAA's sanctions.

Court challenges began after NCAA officials said last summer they would use the fine — levied as part of the university's punishment for failing to report Sandusky's actions to law enforcement — to fight child abuse. Although the organization promised to spend a quarter of the money in Pennsylvania, many, including the state's congressional delegation, said all of the money should go to help Pennsylvanians.

Also Wednesday, Commonwealth Court heard arguments in a suit to obtain documents regarding the Sandusky scandal from the state education department.

Penn State alumnus Ryan Bagwell is appealing a decision by the state's Office of Open Records, which denied his request for copies of documents received by Education Secretary Ronald Tomalis as a member of the Penn State board of trustees.

Potter County judge to preside over Paterno family NCAA lawsuit
June 28, 2013

A judge from Potter County will preside over the civil lawsuit that pits the family of former Penn State coach Joe Paterno against the NCAA.

The state Supreme Court on Thursday assigned Judge John B. Leete, 67, of Coudersport, to the case. Centre County court officials requested a judge from outside the area to avoid the appearance of a conflict of interest because of their ties to Penn State.

The Paterno family filed the lawsuit in May seeking to void the harsh sanctions against Penn State. The lawsuit accused the NCAA’s top officials of conspiring to force university President Rodney Erickson to sign the consent decree, and it said the officials bypassed the organization’s rules for imposing penalties.

Joining the Paternos are members of the university’s board of trustees, professors, former football coaches and players.

The NCAA has not yet filed a response to the lawsuit.

NCAA: Paterno lawsuit ‘baseless,’ should be dismissed
July 23, 2013


BELLEFONTE — The NCAA wants a judge to dismiss the lawsuit brought by the family and supporters of late head coach Joe Paterno, saying the claims are “baseless” and that Penn State is missing as an essential party in the case.

The NCAA filed its response to the Paterno family’s civil lawsuit on Tuesday, the day marking one year since the NCAA came down on Penn State for the Jerry Sandusky scandal with sanctions that include a $60 million, a bowl ban and scholarship reductions. The NCAA asked for a hearing in front of Senior Judge John Leete, who’s been assigned to the case, to make its arguments.

The Paternos’ lawsuit, filed at the end of May, asks that the court wipe out the sanctions on the grounds that the NCAA breached its contract with the university when it imposed the penalties without an investigation. The NCAA used the Freeh report’s findings in lieu of its own investigation.

Joining the Paternos in the lawsuit were five Penn State trustees plus former Nittany Lion players and coaches and Penn State professors.

The NCAA argued in its written objections that Penn State is a necessary party in the suit and it was the university’s president, Rodney Erickson, who signed the consent decree that set forth the sanctions. The plaintiffs in the lawsuit were not punished by the NCAA and do not have the legal standing to sue, the organization’s lawyers argued.

The written arguments said the lawsuit lacked legal merits regarding other claims, such as whether the consent decree defamed Penn State or whether the Paterno name was tarnished. The NCAA also denied the accusation that its leadership of President Mark Emmert and now former Chairman Ed Ray conspired with Louis Freeh and his investigators.
 
The response from the NCAA comes a week and a half after a closed-door session in which coach Bill O’Brien talked to the university’s trustees about a possible request to the NCAA to modify the sanctions, though the specific details have not been made public yet. O’Brien’s presentation indicated he thinks the individual lawsuits could discourage the NCAA from working with Penn State if the proposal is ever sent to the organization.

The lawyer for the Paterno supporters, Paul Kelly, of Boston, did not offer immediate comment as he had not been able to review the NCAA’s response.

The five trustees named in the suit are Anthony Lubrano, Ryan McCombie, Alvin Clemens, Adam Taliaferro and Peter Khoury. On Tuesday, the three trustees elected to the board on platforms critical of the board’s handling of the Sandusky scandal, issued a joint statement in support of the lawsuit.

Judge denies early release of prosecution evidence against Graham Spanier
July 25, 2013


 
Dauphin County President Judge Todd A. Hoover denied Thursday a request from Spanier’s lawyers earlier this week seeking a transcript of his grand jury testimony, prosecution exhibits and written statements from possible prosecution witnesses.

The hearing for Spanier and his co-defendants Tim Curley and Gary Schultz starts Monday in Harrisburg and could continue Tuesday and Thursday, if necessary, in the Dauphin County Courthouse. Prosecutors will present their evidence to see if the judge will hold the cases over for trial.

Spanier is facing perjury, obstruction of justice, child endangerment, conspiracy and failure to report abuse charges, and his lawyers said they want the early release of the documents in the “interests of justice and efficiency.”

Spanier’s lawyers said state law allows the release of grand jury testimony and said the prosecutors from the state Attorney General’s Office have refused to provide them with a copy of it.

Prosecutors could read his grand jury testimony into the court record to support the perjury charge. That’s what happened when Curley and Schultz had a preliminary hearing in December 2011 on the perjury and failure to report abuse charges.

Curley and Schultz will be in court next week, too, to face obstruction of justice, child endangerment and conspiracy charges. The perjury and failure to report abuse cases were bound over for trial after the 2011 hearing, but the case had stalled after the men were indicted on new charges late last year.

Jerry Sandusky Part II: The Cover-up?
July 28, 2013

Monday's preliminary hearing for former Penn State administrators Graham Spanier, Tim Curley and Gary Schultz represents a key turning point for all involved.

It means that after months of delay over thorny legal issues that, in the end, are effectively set aside for another day, the second act of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal is finally set to begin its slow arc through the courts.

For The Pennsylvania State University, that could mean, finally, a light at the end of the tunnel in terms of headline-grabbing criminal trials that do nothing to further the school's image.

For the once highly-accomplished defendants, it's the end of the beginning of the personal purgatory they've been trapped in since the charges against them were filed in 2011 and 2012.

And for the interested bystanders in Pennsylvania and beyond, it's a possible chance to  fill in a few more of the blanks in this sad chapter of state and college football history.
 
At Monday's hearing, for example, state prosecutors will not call former Penn State counsel Cynthia Baldwin as a witness, leaving the fierce defense battle to prohibit her testimony for another day.

The defense, meanwhile, will put no case on itself, instead focusing on trying to learn as much about the prosecution's case as it can, and, hopefully, find some inconsistencies that can be exploited later on.

Attorneys for the defendants were already managing expectations this week.

"It's important to remember that the preliminary hearing is, as the name suggests, a preview of the prosecution's evidence and not an indicator of a defendant's guilt or innocence," said Caroline Roberto, the attorney for former Penn State Athletic Director Tim Curley.

"Virtually every trial that ends in a 'not guilty' verdict started with the innocent defendant being required by a preliminary hearing judge to defend themselves against the prosecution's charges."

But that's not to say there won't be a variety of interesting themes to watch. Here's a few for your consideration.

The new regime's big test:

Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane is reviewing the Sandusky investigation, as it was managed by her predecessors. She has more recently dispatched the judge that oversaw the operation of Sandusky grand juries.

And now, she is prosecuting the charges that flowed from that probe.

It seems like a tricky path the new attorney general has set, and it will be interesting to see if it turns into a minefield.

The world will be watching.

1st test of what Spanier knew about Sandusky set to go before judge in Penn State scandal
July 28, 2013

HARRISBURG, PA. –  A former Penn State president and two former top administrators are set to appear in court on charges they failed to tell police about a sexual abuse allegation involving assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky and then tried to cover up what they knew.

Monday's preliminary hearing for ex-President Graham Spanier (SPAN'-yer), former vice president Gary Schultz and ex-athletic director Tim Curley will determine whether prosecutors have enough evidence to warrant a trial on the charges against them.

The men say they're innocent and weren't aware of the allegation against Sandusky in 2001.

They say they had believed that Sandusky and the boy were engaged in nothing more than horseplay in a university locker room shower.

Former Penn State administrators to appear in court Monday
July 28, 2013
A preliminary hearing will begin Monday to determine whether three former Penn State administrators will stand trial on charges that they covered up the actions of former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

Retired vice president Gary Schultz, former athletic director Tim Curley, and former president Graham Spanier face a bevy of charges in connection with the scandal that rocked the university in 2011.

According to the Associated Press, the three men are charged with perjury, obstruction, endangering the welfare of children, failure to properly report suspected abuse, and perjury. The hearing Monday in front of Pennsylvania District Court Judge William Wenner will not determine the men's guilt or innocence, however; just if there exists enough evidence for prosecutors to move forward with a trial.

A potentially damning piece of evidence purports to show emails between the three men from 2001 discussing how exactly to face the allegations.

"The only downside for us is if the message isn't 'heard' and acted upon, and we then become vulnerable for not having reported it," Spanier wrote, according to the AP.

All three men claim they were unaware that the transgressions that occurred were sexual in nature.

Ex-Penn State officials due in court Monday
July 28, 2013

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — It was late at night Feb. 27, 2001, and Penn State's then-president, Graham Spanier, one of academia's most prominent administrators, typed a brief email to two other top administrators as they debated how to respond to a thorny situation.

He was, he wrote, supportive of the athletics director's proposed approach."The only downside for us is if the message isn't 'heard' and acted upon, and we then become vulnerable for not having reported it," Spanier wrote.

The question of what exact situation the three men were discussing will go before a judge Monday to determine whether Spanier, retired university vice president Gary Schultz and then-athletics director Tim Curley must face trial on charges they covered up an allegation that Jerry Sandusky was sexually preying on boys.
 
The case will go in front of District Judge William Wenner, a former Dauphin County detective, and the preliminary hearing is expected to last a day or two. In recent years as a district judge, Wenner has carved out a niche in handling many of the biggest grand jury cases developed by the state attorney general's office.
In these cases, Wenner has found, with the exception of a few charges he has dismissed, that state prosecutors have met the low burden of evidence necessary to win approval to take their cases to a full court trial.

For this hearing, state prosecutors led by Chief Deputy Attorney General Bruce Beemer are not trying to prove the men's guilt. Rather, they just have to prove that enough evidence exists to warrant a trial.

No witness list was available Friday, but one key piece of evidence at the hearing could be that email exchange among the men.

"My eyes popped out of my head when I saw those emails because they are just so dramatically significant and documentary evidence of a then-conscious state of mind," said Thomas Kline, a Philadelphia lawyer whose client, Victim 5, testified against Sandusky.

July 30, 2013
HARRISBURG, Pa. — Penn State's ex-president and two former top school administrators were ordered Tuesday to stand trial on charges accusing them of a cover-up in the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.

Prosecutors showed enough evidence during a two-day preliminary hearing to warrant a trial for ex-President Graham Spanier, former vice president Gary Schultz and ex-athletic director Tim Curley, District Judge William Wenner concluded.

Wenner called it "a tragic day for Penn State University."

Spanier, two PSU officials ordered held for trial
July 30, 2013

 
According to a transcript read in court Tuesday, Spanier had told a grand jury in April 2011 that he had never heard anything about a 1998 investigation into Jerry Sandusky's behavior with a young boy in a campus locker-room shower. But that ran counter to emails presented Monday that showed Spanier was looped into discussions concerning the incident.
Spanier's grand jury testimony also has him testifying that he was unaware of the seriousness of a second incident involving Sandusky and a boy which ware reported in 2001 by assistant football coach Mike McQueary. "They were horsing around in the shower, I think that was the language used," said Spanier, according to the grand jury transcript. McQueary testified Monday that he made clear to Penn State Athletic Director Tim Curley and Vice President Gary Schultz, the other two defendants, that he witnessed Sandusky sexually assaulting the boy. In other testimony Tuesday at the preliminary hearing for Spanier, Curley and Schultz, a Penn State public information official testified that Spanier expressed no "concern" or "empathy" for Sandusky's victims when Sandusky was arrested in 2011 for assaulting multiple boys over the years. Braden Cook, a computer forensics expert from the Attorney General's office, testified that he found emails among Spanier, Schultz and Curley that discussed the 1998 and 2001 incidents. In the exchange regarding a 2001 report from former assistant Penn State football coach Mike McQueary, the three evidently decided that Curley would speak to Sandusky, and that they would report the behavior to the head of the Second Mile Charity, founded by Sandusky.
 
Sandusky also was investigated for alleged inappropriate behavior with an 11-year-old boy in a campus shower in 1998, and prosecutors on Monday presented e-mails among Spanier, Schultz, and Curley that appeared to discuss the incident. In previous grand jury testimony, the three administrators claimed to have had only limited knowledge of allegations that Sandusky had acted inappropriately with young boys on campus. In the case of the 2001 incident, all three said McQueary did not convey the seriousness of what he had seen. In her testimony Tuesday, Lisa Powers, director of public information, said that when Spanier initially drafted a public statement to address the charges against Sandusky, Curley and Schultz, it lacked any mention of the victims. It solely expressed support for Schultz and Curley. "There was no indication of empathy, or any concern expressed," she said. Spanier later added two sentences stating that the allegations needed to be fully investigated, and that children should be protected. Under cross examination by Spanier's attorney, she acknowledged that she had never seen Spanier display callousness towards children.

The Attorney General’s Office is “ready to go” in prosecuting the perjury and obstruction of justice case against Penn State’s former president and two administrators, Attorney General Kathleen Kane said Wednesday, a day after the three men were ordered to stand trial.

“We certainly have more evidence than we put on at the preliminary hearing,” she said during an interview with the Centre Daily Times. “We’re looking forward to trial.”
