Education Department told to hand over hundreds of Sandusky-related emails
August 14, 2014

A former Penn State trustee candidate who’s been campaigning for transparency from the university and pushing for board members’ and state officials’ emails has scored a victory.

The state Office of Open Records issued a decision Wednesday that the Department of Education should hand over hundreds of emails requested by Ryan Bagwell, the former board candidate who requested the documents through a Right to Know request.

Bagwell, who runs the Penn State Sunshine Fund, wants emails sent to Ron Tomalis, former state secretary of education, from Gov. Tom Corbett, his top aides and key Penn State officials.

The department found 644 pages, but wanted Bagwell to pay $338 in fees before it would even respond to his request and said it reserved the right to determine that some of the documents are protected and shouldn’t be handed over.

In its decision, the open records office found the Department of Education didn’t follow proper procedures in responding to the request. The state has 30 days to appeal the decision to Commonwealth Court.

Bagwell has been using open records requests in his ongoing bid to reveal information about how the university handled the aftermath of the Jerry Sandusky child abuse scandal.

Penn State trustees vote to stay course on Sandusky sanctions
August 13, 2014

HARRISBURG — A divided Penn State board voted Wednesday to endorse a potential legal settlement that would keep its $60 million fine over the Jerry Sandusky scandal within Pennsylvania, signaling their support for a deal to end a dispute between state officials and the NCAA over the sanctions.

The trustees voted 19-8 for the resolution over a possible deal to end a Commonwealth Court lawsuit over the use of the money. Penn State was added as a defendant in that case earlier this year.

The resolution states that keeping the money in Pennsylvania “would be a win for the commonwealth, a win for the university and a win for the children of Pennsylvania.”

Much of the debate focused on a statement that the university “remains committed to full compliance with the consent decree,” which included the fine, a multi-year ban on postseason play and a temporary loss of football scholarships. Most of the board's nine alumni members voted to strip that from the resolution, but they were defeated and then also lost the vote on the overall resolution.

The lawsuit in question is one of three pending legal disputes concerning the consent decree reached in the wake of the child sex-abuse scandal involving the former assistant football coach.

A federal lawsuit by the NCAA against Gov. Tom Corbett and others that challenges the legality of a 2013 state law requiring the $60 million remain in Pennsylvania is on hold for a month while the parties negotiate. The Paterno family and others have also filed a lawsuit in county court that attacks the legality of the sanctions, among other things.

Board chairman Keith Masser told the trustees on Wednesday that there is no agreement on the terms of a possible settlement, but the parties have asked for the board's position.
