NCAA Ordered to Produce Documents Related to Repeal of PSU Sanctions in Paterno Lawsuit

by Geoff Rushton
The judge in the Estate of Joe Paterno's lawsuit against the NCAA on Monday ordered the organization to produce all communications with its board members, administrators and Penn State officials related to the repeal of the Consent Decree and sanctions against the university.

Senior Judge John Leete
Specially-presiding Senior Judge John Leete of Potter County also required the NCAA to provide a privilege log listing any documents being withheld on the grounds of attorney-client privilege.

The Paterno estate and former coaches Jay Paterno and Bill Kenney are suing the NCAA, its president Mark Emmert and former executive committee chair Ed Ray. The lawsuit, filed in 2013, claims commercial disparagement and defamation, citing the use of the Louis Freeh report commissioned by Penn State in the NCAA’s consent decree for sanctions with Penn State related to the school's handling of reports of child sexual abuse by Jerry Sandusky. The Consent Decree was replaced and most sanctions repealed or ended early. The university is a nominal defendant in the case. The plaintiffs say the report and sanctions resulted in damage to commercial interests and values and harmed the former assistant coaches’ ability to find similar work.  Read  more...

So our tax money payed the paterno family millions of dollars for coaching and covering up sex abuse now they want more, wtf.

Actually, Penn State's athletics program is completely self sustaining, so Paterno's salary had nothing to do with taxes. Plus, PSU is only funded about 10% from the state.
However, I agree that his $13 million pension should be enough for the family.
